Lombard’s annual six-week free leaf pick-up for residents will begin Monday, Nov. 1, and end Friday, Dec. 10. 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 the need for stickers. Although the free pick-up ends Dec. 10, the general Yard Waste Program ends Dec. 17. If bags of leaves are put out after Dec.10, they will require a yard waste sticker.
Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of the Compost Bin Reimbursement Program, which provides up to $80. The Free Leaf Collection Program does not include brush collection, which requires bundling with non-plastic twine and yard waste stickers.
