Evansville’s annual fall leaf pickup lasts eight weeks in the fall, from November to mid-December. Please contain leaves in biodegradable plastic or paper leaf bags, or in your regular trash cart, and place them separately from normal weekly trash. Leaves may also be placed in containers that weigh 40 pounds or less. The bags or containers should be placed at the pickup location with your cart 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 or in containers that do not meet these requirements will not be picked up. Residences will be notified to re-bag their leaves in biodegradable bags or properly place them in a container, and they will be picked up the following week.
