City Announces Spring Loose Leaf Pickup Program

The Noblesville Street Department normally conducts pickup of loose leaves only in the autumn.  Due to the fact that many leaves still remain on the ground, the Street Department will make one complete circuit of the city with leaf machines in order to remove any remaining loose leaves.  This special pickup will begin on Monday, March 24, 2014 and should take approximately three weeks to complete.   Residents who still have leaves in their yard who would like to take advantage of this special pickup must rake the loose leaves as close to the edge of the street as possible without placing leaves in the street.  Loose leaves with brush, grass, litter, and/or other debris will not be picked up, as this will damage equipment.  Please note that leaves will not be picked up in alleys.   Because of the variables involved with this special pick-up including how many leaf machines are able to be used, weather conditions, and how many residents take advantage of this program, it will be difficult to predict which neighborhoods will have their leaves picked up on which days.  Due to this, residents who would like to be included in this pick-up should have their leaves raked and placed close to the street by next Monday, March 24.  Residents who miss this special one-time pickup will need to bag their leaves in free, biodegradable bags and call the Street Department at 776-6348 to schedule a pickup.  The biodegradable bags are available for free to Noblesville residents and may be picked up at the Street Department (1575 Pleasant Street) or City Hall (16 S. 10th Street).

For more information about the one-time spring leaf pickup program, contact the Street Department at 776-6348.


Republic Services has announced that Noblesville residents who have regular trash pickups on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays will have their regular pickup this week as normal. Residents who normally have Monday pickups will have a double pickup next Monday, January 13. Residents who normally have Tuesday pickups will have a double pickup next Tuesday, January 14. Residents who will have double pickups next Monday and Tuesday are asked to put the extra trash bags right next to their Republic Services trash container.
Residents who have any questions regarding this temporary schedule should contact Republic Services at (317) 917-7300.

Leaf Pickup in Noblesville Now in Progress

From the Noblesville Mayor’s office:

The Noblesville Street Department has announced that leaf pickup is in effect from now until the end of the year (weather permitting). There are two methods that residents may use to dispose of leaves: 1) Raking loose leaves to the curb, and 2) Bagging leaves in free, biodegradable leaf bags. The bagged leaf method is preferred due to it being more efficient and cost effective.
If residents choose to rake their leaves, then loose leaves must be raked as closely to the edge of the street as possible without placing leaves in the street. Loose leaves with brush, grass, litter, and/or other debris will not be picked up, as this will damage equipment. Street crews will make a continuous circuit of the city to pick up loose leaves until Friday, December 2nd. On average, it will take approximately four to five weeks to make a complete circuit of the city.
Bagged leaves will be picked up on the same day as residents’ regular trash day. Please make sure that leaves are bagged only in the free, biodegradable bags provided by the city and are placed separately from trash containers. Residents may set out as many biodegradable bags as necessary, but each bag must weigh no more than forty pounds. Biodegradable bags are available free of charge to Noblesville residents at all fire stations, City Hall, the Street Department, the Parks Department, and the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center.
Please note that neither loose leaves nor bagged leaves will be picked up in alleys. Pickups will only be in front of a resident’s house.
After December 2nd, all leaves must be bagged in the biodegradable bags, and the Street Department must then be called to schedule a pickup. For more information, contact the Street Department at (317) 776-6348.
