Mayor Announces Autumn Leaf Drop-Off

Wednesday October 11, 2006

Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced autumn leaf drop-off sites for the city’s suburban residents.

Drop-off for loose leaves begins October 23 and continues through December 14. Four drop-off sites in the suburban areas will operate Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sites will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Sundays.

Leaves will continue to be collected in the Urban Services District as part of regularly scheduled yard waste pick up.

“I know residents need a convenient place to dispose of the leaves they collect and I hope they’ll take advantage of this free service,” Abramson said. “Proper leaf disposal reduces the risk of fire and flooding, plus it keeps Louisville looking its best.”

1st District Works Yard, 595 Hubbards Lane
Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sites will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Sundays.
