Leaf Collection

LeLeaf Collector 2020af Collection Program will take place in October and November (specific dates can be found on the Village Facebook page or website homepage). Crews will make one pass through the Village. Grass clippings, sticks, twigs and other debris cannot be collected by the leaf vac. Placement of foreign debris in the leaf piles will result in the crew skipping your address.

Additionally, crews cannot vacuum leaves that are within 10' of a tree, mailbox, fire hydrant, street light, street sign, etc. Do not park cars in front of the leaves to be collected, as our leaf vacuum will not be able to reach them.

Leaves for bulk pick-up must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate, so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.

The Village's refuse hauler, Lakeshore Recycling, will pick up leaves each week on your regularly scheduled collection day for no additional charge. There are no stickers needed, however, you will need to put the leaves in yard waste bags or clearly marked 32-gallon yard waste cans with two handles. Bags must be placed at the curb no earlier than 5p the night before your scheduled collection.

Please remember—leaf burning is prohibited by Village ordinance. 

Leaf burning is prohibited by village ordinance (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 12-27). It is also important to remember that leaves must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 9-45), so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.
