The Noblesville Street Deptartment will stop collecting piles of loose leaves this Friday, Jan. 6.
Street Department Commissioner Patty Johnson said residents who do not have leaves collected by Friday afternoon are asked to bag them. Residents are also asked not to rake piles now as there is no guarantee that leaf vacuums will make it to your residence in time. Vacuums will be in service through the week as weather permits.
Bagged leaves will be picked up on the same day as residents’ regular trash day but not necessarily the same time since leaves are collected by the street department and not Republic Services.
Residents should be sure leaves are only bagged in the free, biodegradable bags provided by the city and are placed separately from trash containers. There is no limit on the number of bags each residence can place outside, but each bag must weigh no more than 40 pounds. Bags are available free of charge to Noblesville residents at all fire stations, city hall (16 S. 10th St.), street department (1575 Pleasant St.), parks department (701 Cicero Rd.) and the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center (1717 Pleasant St.).
Neither loose leaves nor bagged leaves will be picked up in alleys. Pickups will only be in front of a resident’s house. For more about the leaf program, contact the street department at 317-776-6348.
