The Lisle Township Highway Department will pick up your raked leaves starting Monday, Oct. 26, 2015 through Thanksgiving week this year, weather permitting.
Remember These Dates
Mon. 10/26—First pick-up starts
Mon. 11/23—Last pick-up starts
The township leaf program is designed to help homeowners clean up their lawns, but it may not accommodate every type of tree. If you must get rid of leaves before or after those dates, you should make other arrangements. Leaves may be used as mulch in your garden or landscaped areas, or put into bags as yard waste for your waste hauler.
The fields where we dump leaves are closed after Dec. 1. Our last pick-up must end before that date.
The leaf program will stop prematurely if we have an early snowfall or icy streets before Thanksgiving. These same trucks must be converted to plow and spread salt. You will then be responsible to clear away the leaves that are left.
Only leaves should be in the leaf piles. Objects such as logs or rocks will jam our leaf loader and cause an interruption while repairs are made.
We welcome calls to our office with questions about the program, but we cannot tell you when we will be on your street. A leaf pick-up pass through all the streets in the township may take from 2 to 7 days, which makes it impossible for us to predict specific pick-up dates or times or locations in advance. We can tell you when our leaf machine was last on your street.
Please read and keep the following guidelines. Note that it is dangerous to rake your leaves into the street—keep them in the parkway, behind the curb or shoulder.
