Louisville Metro residents not mulching autumn leaves into their lawns or putting them out in reusable or compostable containers for curbside collection now have the option to dispose of them at one of three drop-off sites.

Metro Public Works is offering a free leaf drop-off service through December 2. Drop-off will not be available on November 23 and 24 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Only loose leaves will be accepted. Containers used to bring leaves to the drop-off sites must be disposed of off-site by residents.

Public Works Yard, 10500 Lower River Road (enter from Bethany Lane), Tuesday – Saturday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

  • Public Works East District Operations Center, 595 Hubbards Lane, Tuesday – Saturday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
