Seasonal shutdown of yard waste collection to begin

January 16, 2019

Yard waste collection season in the Urban Services District of Louisville will end after the January 19 collections. Regular yard waste collection will resume on April 1, 2019. During the suspension individual requests for collection may be made by calling Metro311 at 574-5000.

Those requests will be handled on an as needed basis rather than running crews fulltime on routes across the city.

The seasonal shutdown is possible because yard waste collection volumes are very low in the winter months. It allows Metro Public Works to direct additional resources to the effort to clear our streets and roads, including interstate highways, of litter in advance of spring along with other solid waste activities.
