The Town of Lancaster has started picking up leaves throughout the Town. The Highway Department DOES NOT take requests for leaf pickup. The Highway Department has five leaf trucks that have routes to cover street by street throughout the Town.
Please place leaves between the curb and the sidewalk only and do not place them in the street. Leaves should also be placed in a separate pile from brush and ornamental grasses as these items cannot go through the leafers.
If you prefer not to wait for our pickup, you may place your leaves in your garbage tote. Please be patient it takes time to cover the entire Town.
There will be a HEAP Outreach at the Lancaster Senior Center on Thursday, December 1, 2022. See the attachment for more information.
