Leaf Drop-Off Service Available in Iroquois Park
Tuesday November 3, 2009
Louisville Metro Government is offering a free residential leaf drop-off service in Iroquois Park
Through November 28, citizens may bring leaves from their yards to Iroquois Park on Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The service will not be available on Thanksgiving or on the day after Thanksgiving. The leaf drop-off service will only accept loose leaves. Any bags used to transport leaves must be emptied and removed from the site.
The service is only available to individual citizens; no commercial vehicles will be allowed. Leaves collected during November will be used as mulch for landscaping projects in local Olmsted parks.
Metro Parks and Louisville Metro Public Works & Assets are teaming up to make the leaf drop-off service available. Olmsted Parks Conservancy staff are managing the leaf material as it’s being collected, to eliminate odors and keep it oxygenated.
“We know that our citizens are looking for environmentally-friendly ways to dispose of their leaves,” said Ted Pullen, director of Louisville Metro Public Works & Assets. “We expect to collect a lot of leaves that will be used throughout Louisville’s parks in the coming months.”
