Christmas Tree Drop-Off


Starting Tuesday, December 28, Christmas tree drop-off sites will be available for all Louisville/Jefferson County residents at three locations. The Hubbards Lane site will also instantly recycle Christmas trees into mulch that will be offered back to citizens for home use. Those wishing to receive mulch must bring an appropriate container in which to carry it. All lights and ornaments should be removed from trees before they are dropped off. Christmas tree vendors may recycle their unsold trees on Tuesday, December 28 only, and only at the Hubbards Lane site.


Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Waste Reduction Center closes at 3 p.m. on Saturdays)

December 28 - January 29

All locations will close at 1 p.m. on Friday, December 31 and will be closed Saturday, January 1 and Saturday, January 15. 

  • East District Recycling Center, 595 N. Hubbards Lane
  • Public Works Yard, 10500 Lower River Road (enter from Bethany Lane)
  • Waste Reduction Center, 636 Meriwether Avenue 

Metro Public Works will also provide curbside pickup of Christmas trees within the Urban Services District after the holiday. Residents with City curbside yard waste pickup may set their Christmas trees and greenery out on their regular collection day. Trees may not be in plastic bags and all decorations must be removed. 

Residents normally serviced by private waste haulers should check with those companies to see whether and when tree pickup is available.

Solid Waste Holiday Schedule


Solid waste collection services will NOT be affected by Christmas and New Year's Day holidays since they fall on a Saturday. Residents normally serviced by private waste haulers should check with those companies for holiday collection schedules.

Staffed Drop-off Locations The full-service recycling locations, along with the Waste Reduction Center and Haz Bin, will be closing early at 1 p.m. on December 24 and December 31. They will be closed all day on December 25 and January 1. 

  • East District Public Works Yard, 595 N. Hubbards Lane
  • Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway
  • Central Government Center, 7201 Outer Loop
  • Waste Reduction Center, 636 Meriwether Avenue
  • Haz Bin, Household Hazardous Waste Facility, 7501 Grade Lane

Winter Yard Waste Schedule


Since the amount of yard waste generated is far less in the winter, the schedule is adjusted for a more efficient collection. This year, from mid-January to mid-March, yard waste will be collected EVERY OTHER WEEK on the opposite week of recycling. Residents do NOT need to make a request for yard waste collection. The Recycle Coach calendar will be adjusted and citizens can view their calendar and set reminders using the app.

During the weeks without yard waste collection, all Louisville residents are invited to drop off yard waste for FREE at the Waste Reduction Center. Yard waste must be bagged and bundled according to curbside collection rules. Accepted material includes leaves, twigs, straw, pine needles, shrubbery trimmings, Christmas trees, and branches and tree trimmings that are less than 2 inches in diameter and less than 4 feet long. Material may be in reusable containers, in paper or compostable bags, or bundled for easy off-loading. (Businesses and unbundled loads will be charged a fee as usual.) 

Waste Reduction Center

636 Meriwether Avenue

Open Tuesday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Residential yard waste will only be accepted for free during the weeks of January 11, January 25, February 8, February 22, and March 8.

Regular weekly yard waste collection will resume the week of March 14.
