Lombard's annual free leaf pick-up for residents ends Friday, Dec. 14., when all yard waste collection will cease for the year. During this program an unlimited number of paper bags containing only leaves may be placed curbside on the normal waste collection day, without the need of stickers. Waste Management collects the leaves and delivers them to local farms for composting.
Yard waste stickers are required on any cans and also for nonresidential properties. Stickers cost $2.00 each and are available at local stores and Village Hall, while supplies last. Cans and bags filled with grass, twigs, branches and plant materials must have stickers.
