INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Department of Public Works says leaf collection will begin on Monday, Nov. 7.
Residents can leave up to 40 bags of leaves for pick-up per week on their regularly scheduled collection day during the four-week collection period, which ends Friday, Dec. 2.
DPW shared the following guidelines for leaf collection:
- Place leaves in plastic bags. Paper bags can deteriorate and break apart in wet weather.
- Keep bags at least three feet away from your trash cart for easy pickup.
- Leaf bags should be outside by 7 a.m. on your normal trash day.
The leaves are taken to the South Side Landfill for composting. Residents can then get free mulch in the spring.
Outside of the four-week leaf season, residents can place bags of leaves inside their trash cart or take them to the Citizens' Transfer Station on Saturdays. Burning leaves is illegal in Marion County.
