Leaf Collection 2019
The 2019 Leaf Collection Program will take place in October and November. Crews will make one pass through the Village during the following weeks: October 28th, November 4th November 11th and November 18, 2019. Additional pickups will continue as needed until the end of November. Grass clippings, sticks, twigs and other debris cannot be collected by the leaf vac. Placement of foreign debris in the leaf piles will result in the crew skipping your address.
Additionally, crews cannot vacuum leaves that are within 10' of a tree, mailbox, fire hydrant, street light, street sign, etc. Do not park cars in front of the leaves to be collected, as our leaf vacuum will not be able to reach them.
Leaves for bulk pick-up must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate, so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.
The Village's refuse hauler, LRS/DC Trash, will also pick up leaves each week on your regularly scheduled collection day for no additional charge. There are no stickers needed, however, you will need to put the leaves in yard waste bags or clearly marked 32-gallon yard waste cans with two handles. Bags must be placed at the curb no earlier than 5:00 p.m. the night before your scheduled collection.
Instead of disposing of leaves, you might consider mulching them with a lawn mower. Mowing is generally less labor intensive than raking and it provides additional nutrients to your lawn and landscape. Leaf mulch can be left on the lawn or added to landscaped areas for a healthy boost to next seasons growth. Furthermore, you can fold leaf mulch into gardens and flower beds as a great source of natural fertilizer.
Please remember—leaf burning is prohibited by Village ordinance.
Leaf burning is prohibited by village ordinance (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 12-27). It is also important to remember that leaves must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 9-45), so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.
