Leaf pickup begins mid to late October provided enough leaves have fallen to warrant a crew going out. The program schedule is weather dependent. This City program is in addition to Waste Management’s yard waste collection service.
Waste Management yard waste service includes collection of grass clippings, leaves, tree branches, and brush, collected weekly on your regular pickup day. Brush and branches must be cut into four-foot lengths and bundled with string or twine. Each bundle must not exceed 50 lbs. Unbundled brush will not be collected.
Yard waste must be placed in brown paper bags, which can be purchased at local retail stores. A 96-gallon yard waste cart can be rented for $24 per year by calling the City of Lockport, Water Department at (815) 838-0549. Yard waste carts can also be purchased for $105 by calling Waste Management customer service at (800) 964-8988. Yard waste carts can be used as an additional refuse cart during the winter months.
Both programs will continue through Friday, December 4.
