Fall Leaf Collection

The Annual Fall Leaf Pick-up lasts eight weeks in the fall, from mid-October to mid-December.

This annual service is available to City residents who pay for trash service with their water bill, including newly annexed areas. Apartment complexes, mobile home communities and business/commercial customers are not eligible.

Leaves must be contained in biodegradable plastic or paper leaf bags, or in containers, and placed separately from where the normal weekly trash is collected. The bags or containers should be placed at the pickup location before 6 a.m. on the normal days of collection. These bags should only be placed at the pickup location on your normal day of trash collection.

Leaves not in biodegradable bags that do not meet these requirements will not be picked up. Residences with leaves not in the biodegradable bags will be notified to re-bag their leaves in biodegradable bags, and they will be picked up the following week.

If a customer has put their leaves out according to the requirements above, yet feels they were missed, they can call Republic Services at (812) 424-3345 within two days to report a possible missed pick-up.
