The Department of Public Works conducts the annual Leaf Collection Program to help our citizens dispose of the large number of leaves each fall. This program helps your Indianapolis/Marion County environment by turning the leaves into useable compost, offered free to citizens, to help strengthen and beautify lawns and gardens county-wide.
View our Public Service Announcement on this year's Leaf Collection Program.
Open burning of leaves is illegal in Indianapolis/Marion County.
