Free Leaf Pick-up
The Village of Lombard’s annual free leaf pick-up for residents will be held October 19th through November 28th. An unlimited number of brown paper bags containing only leaves may be placed curbside on the normal waste collection day. Yard waste stickers are required on any cans. The stickers cost $1.90 each and are available at local stores and Village Hall. Waste Management brings the leaves to farm fields for composting.  

The Village’s yard waste program with Waste Management runs from the first full week in April through the last full week in November. Cans and bags filled with grass clippings, twigs, branches and plant materials must have stickers. Properly bundled brush does not require a sticker. Each bundle of brush must be securely tied and not exceed 6 feet in length, 18 inches in diameter, nor 50 pounds. Individual limbs and branches must be less than 6 inches in diameter.
