Leaf collection in Indianapolis will begin November 6 . Department of Public Works will collect until December.
INDIANAPOLIS -- The leaves are falling, and it's time to start picking them up in Marion County.
Officials with the Department of Public Works say fall leaf collection season begins Nov. 6 and will run through Dec. 1.
You are allowed up to 40 bags of leaves per week – on your regular trash pick-up day.
Mayor’s Neighborhood Advocate Andrea Watts says, “Leaves should not be set directly in contact with the 96-gallon cart. If they are, the cart may not be able to be emptied.”
Don’t forget, you aren’t allowed to burn leaves in Marion County. For a small fee, you can take extra leaves to the Citizens Transfer Station at 2324 South Belmont Avenue.
The station is open each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
DPW workers collected more than 10 million pounds of leaves in 2016.
