Lombard’s annual six-week free leaf pick-up for residents begins Monday, Nov. 5 and ends Friday, Dec. 14, when all yard waste collection will cease for the year.
During this period, 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.
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[GD1] , while supplies last. Cans and bags filled with grass, twigs, branches and plant materials must have stickers. Waste Management collects the leaves and delivers them to local farms for composting.
[GD2] Leaves must not be blown or raked into the streets since they can block the storm drains and also raise phosphorus levels in ponds and streams, thereby contributing to algae growth in warm weather. The same is true for grass clippings placed onto streets. Mulching leaves and grass into lawns provides useful nutrients with no harm off-site.
