This fall, the Zionsville Department of Public Works (DPW) will provide curbside leaf collection for residents in the urban service district (click here to view a map of rural vs. urban service districts).
DPW asks for the following courtesies:
- Rake your leaves into long narrow piles along the curb. This makes it easier and quicker to vacuum the leaves. The department cannot reach leaves more than a few feet from the edge of the street.
- The leaf vacuums can only accept leaves. Do not place sticks, pine cones, gravel or other non-leaf objects in your piles. Any damage to the leaf vacuums can delay collection.
- Park your cars off the street if possible. The large truck is difficult to maneuver. Clear streets make the job much quicker.
Leaf collection begins Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 and runs through Friday, Dec. 3, 2021 (weather permitting). This could be extended to mid-December if necessary and weather permits. There is no set schedule or particular day for leaf collection as the volume of leaves placed for collection cannot be controlled or predicted, and therefore the service varies each week. Every attempt is made to make a complete round through every neighborhood each week, but during heavy times the service may extend to bi-weekly.
This service provides Zionsville residents in the urban service district a means to dispose of leaves. All leaves collected are recycled.
