LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – On Tuesday three leaf drop off sites opened around Louisville where you can drop-off leaves free of charge.
The service will run through Saturday, Dec. 8. Only loose leaves are accepted. You must dump them out of any trash bags.
The drop-off sites open at 9 a.m. They are closed Sundays, Mondays, Thanksgiving and the day after.
Residents say they're happy to see the Hubbards Lane location open again this year.
"Been closed for a couple years. Had to take your leaves all the way to the top of Iroquois Hill, which from my home is 26 mile round trip. This way I can just run them over here," Wallace Horine, who uses the leaf drop-off services, said.
The leaves will be turned into compost and used for mulching projects throughout the city.
The drop-off sites are on lower River Road at Bethany Lane in south Louisville, the Public Works Yard on Hubbards Lane and the Waste Reduction Center on Meriwether Avenue.
