The City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works takes care of our leaf collection during the fall months.  Please read the following information:


During leaf collection season, you can dispose of 40 bags of leaves each week with your regular trash. This year, leaf season runs from Monday, November 11 through Friday, December 6.

Put the leaves in large plastic trash bags, and put the bags in your trash cart or on the street by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Keep the leaf bags 3 feet away from your cart collection area and out of sidewalks and public rights-of-way.

The collected leaves will be composted at South Side Landfill. In the spring, the mulch will be available for use in your garden. South Side Landfill’s address is 2561 Kentucky Ave., and the phone number is 317.247.6808.

If you need to dispose of leaves outside of leaf collection season, you can take them to the Citizens’ Transfer Station at 2324 S. Belmont Ave. on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fee is $2 per carload and $5 per truckload.
