Resident Tips & Information

Lincolnshire's Annual Leaf Collection (Leaf Pickup) Program takes place each fall. Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb where vacuum trucks will collect them. Leaves should be placed in the parkway grass, NOT IN THE STREET. Depositing leaves into the street is a violation of section 8-3-8 of Village Code and violators may be fined. Please see the correct way to stage leaves is shown in the photo below

Leaf Collection with Arrow

Residents should have their leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of each collection week to ensure they are collected. Leaf collection does not necessarily take place the same day as your garbage collection.

Waste Management will make three trips to each side of town throughout the Village to collect leaves. Each pass through the Village may take several days. Residents are reminded that once the collection truck makes its final run in your neighborhood, it will not return to collect any additional leaves.

Waste Management will make every effort to collect leaves along your roadway during your week of pick-up. However, factors such as weather or large volumes of leaves may slow down collection.

Due to the limited reach of the vacuum truck, residents are asked to rake leaves as close to the street as possible. When placing the leaves at the curb, please do not block culverts or storm sewer openings. Leaves piled in these areas may create drainage problems in the event of heavy rains or melting snow. Residents with questions or concerns should contact Waste Management at 800-796-9696.
