[October 23, 2008]
The street department in Lincoln
will start the city's leaf pickup program on Nov. 3.
The leaves must be put in biodegradable paper bags. No brush.
City crews will leave any brush at the curb, and the resident will
be responsible for the cleanup.
The bags must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on the date listed for
each ward. Once the street department crews go down each street in
each ward, they will not return until the next scheduled pickup
The following dates for each
ward are subject to change due to weather and timing of leaves
dropping or not.
Ward 1 -- Nov. 3,
Ward 2 -- Nov. 5,
17, Dec. 1
Ward 3 -- Nov. 7,
19, Dec. 3
Ward 4 -- Nov. 10,
21, Dec. 5
Ward 5 -- Nov. 12, 24, Dec. 8
Beginning Oct. 30 through Dec. 2, the city landfill will be open
from 8 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday for dumping
landscape waste. This service is free of charge to Lincoln
residents. At the same location, the city has free mulch, finer than
what was available in the past. The landfill is located at Broadwell
Drive and Old 66, north of the Salt Creek bridge.
After Dec. 2, the landfill hours will be on Wednesdays and
Saturdays, 8 a.m.-3:50 p.m.
