Fall Leaf Collections Begin in Two Weeks

It’s leaf-raking time again, and Public Works is gearing up to help Metro residents dispose of their bagged leaves.

Beginning Monday, October 31, trucks operated by MPW employees will travel Metro’s 12 brush routes picking up bagged leaves left at the curb or in alleys. Crews will make a second sweep of the routes in early December. You should have your bagged leaves out by the first day of collection in your area, use only biodegradable bags, and place them where your trash is collected. Satellite cities (Belle Meade, Forest Hills, Oak Hill, Berry Hill, Lakewood and Goodlettsville) are excluded.
There are several ways to dispose of leaves. They can be mulched in place by a lawn mower, piled up in your yard for composting, or set out in bags for Metro’s collection service. Whatever you choose to do, please don’t rake your leaves into the street where they may plug up storm drains or cause other problems.
You can also take your bagged leaves to Metro’s Bordeaux mulch facility at 1400 County Hospital Road at no charge. If your leaves are bagged in plastic, please plan to take the bags back home with you.

For more information, call 880-1000, or visit www.nashville.gov/recycle.

Bagged leaves will be picked up on the following schedule:

Routes 1, 2 and 3 Oct 31 – Nov 7 Dec 6 – Dec 14
Routes 4, 5 and 6 Nov 8 – Nov 15 Dec 15 – Dec 23
Routes 7, 8, and 9 Nov 16 – Nov 23 Dec 27 – Jan 5
Routes 10, 11, and 12 Nov 28 – Dec 5 Jan 6 – Jan 14
