[ARCHIVED] Help Keep Leaves Away from Storm Drains

Colorful fall leaves on storm drain inlet

With the fall colors now coming down, residents are asked to help clear fallen leaves from storm drain inlets to prevent street flooding. Lombard Public Works operates two street sweepers that do their best to remove leaves that have fallen directly onto streets. Raking or blowing leaves into a street is unlawful, and violations may be reported to Code Enforcement at (630) 620-5757, codeenforcement@villageoflombard.org, or through this link. Residents may take advantage of the free six-week leaf collection starting November 7th. 


Keeping leaves away from storm sewers benefits waterways by preventing the phosphorus in decomposing leaves from contributing to algae blooms, which decreases oxygen available for fish. Rather, mulching leaves provides essential nutrients for your lawn, trees and bushes. Residents may also take advantage of the Village’s Compost Bin Reimbursement Program to create rich soil to use throughout the year on house plants and gardens. See https://www.villageoflombard.org/188/Yard-Waste-Brush-Compost for more information.


FREE 6-WEEK LEAF COLLECTION PROGRAM: NOV 7 – DEC 16, 2022

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 stickers. For more information, visit www.villageoflombard.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=531.
