Single-household residences with city waste collection receive once-a-year leaf vacuum service. To participate:
- Figure out when the vacuum will be in your neighborhood by entering your address in the map above. Weather and other circumstances may affect the schedule. Updates will be posted daily. As your vacuum date approaches, check back to make sure it hasn’t changed. Visit www.citygram.org/lexington to receive text notifications about vacuum collection.
- The Sunday before your vacuum collection begins, prepare your leaves. Rake them into the service area between the curb and sidewalk. If your sidewalk abuts the curb or if you have no sidewalk, place the leaves on the edge of your lawn closest to the street. Never rake leaves into the street; they can cause traffic hazards and clog storm drains. Piles should contain only leaves. Other objects, such as tree limbs and rocks, can injure crew members or damage equipment.
- Leaves may continue to fall after your vacuum date. Residents may dispose of their leaves on regular waste collection days using their gray yard cart or yard waste bags. Coupons for free yard waste bags were distributed in the Waste Management newsletter. Additional coupons can be obtained by calling LexCall at 311.
All city residents have the following options for disposing of leaves year-round at no cost.
- Haley Pike composting facility located at 4216 Hedger Lane (two free loads per month)
- Using a composting mower
Questions and concerns about leaf disposal can be directed to LexCall at 311.
