Lombard’s annual six-week free leaf pick-up for residents begins Monday, Nov. 4 and ends Friday, Dec. 13, when all yard waste collection will cease for the year.
During this time, residential property owners may place an unlimited amount of paper bags containing only leaves curbside on their normal Waste Management collection day without need of stickers. This program has been adjusted to begin later, in order to accommodate later leaf fall patterns. The Free Leaf Collection Program does not include brush collection, which requires bundling with non-plastic twine and yard waste stickers. For information on leaf and brush collection visit villageoflombard.org/yardwaste.
