Send a link to a friend

[October 12, 2011]  The street department in Lincoln will provide leaf collection to all residents on the following dates:

  • Ward 1 -- Oct. 17, 28 and Nov. 9

  • Ward 2 -- Oct. 19, 31 and Nov. 14

  • Ward 3 -- Oct. 21, Nov. 2 and 16

  • Ward 4 -- Oct. 24, Nov. 4 and 18

  • Ward 5 -- Oct. 26, Nov. 7 and 21

Residents must have their leaves in biodegradable paper bags and placed by the curb before 7 a.m. on their scheduled day of pickup. No brush or other landscape material will be picked up, only the leaves. If the bags are not out when the crews drive the routes, the crews will not be back to pick them up until the next scheduled day for that ward.

Other ways to get rid of your leaves are as follows:

  • Mulch the leaves with your lawn mower.

  • Bring your own leaves to the city's landscape waste facility on the corner of Broadwell Drive and Lincoln Parkway. The fall extended hours will start Oct. 25 and run until Nov. 23 on the following days: Tuesdays through Sundays, 8 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. After Nov. 23 the facility will be open on Wednesdays and Saturdays with the same hours.

If you have any questions, you can call 732-4655 or email
