autumn-leaves

The City Leaf Pickup Program runs from November through December. This program is limited to the historic areas of Old Town Lincoln where there is a high density of city-owned trees and storm drainage has less capacity to handle the fallen leaves. Leaf pickup will be on Monday-Tuesday or Wednesday-Friday, depending on your street.

The City asks that you:

  • Rake leaves into neat piles on the edge of the street (avoiding storm drains).
  • Place leaves so they do not obstruct traffic.
  • Do not blow leaves into the street.

Leaves piled on lawns will not be picked up. Please no branches or other foreign debris (such as cinder blocks, dirt, or other non-leaf matter).

Leaves not placed out by the required time may not be serviced until the following week. Leaves that have a vehicle parked on top of them will not be picked up. Residents located outside of the Leaf Pickup Program area may utilize their green waste can for leaf pickup service.
