Fall Leaf Collection 2022

The Town of Lunenburg offers the following leaf collection opportunities to assist residents with their fall leaf clean-up:

• Public Works does a one-time leaf collection on every Town street making one pass only, over approx. four weeks. This begins the week of November 14th in New Town and November 28th in Old Town. (Please note there is no scheduled date per street address.) Leaves in paper bags are encouraged, however the vacuum truck can also get leaves that are raked to the edge of the property WITHOUT putting leaves into the ditches.


• Leaves and brush can be delivered to the Town’s Starr Street compost side on Fridays from 8:00am-4:30pm.


• Leaves can be put out for collection on scheduled “green week” compost collection days (green bin or paper bags).

• Residents are also reminded that leaves can be mulched with a lawnmower mulching blade at the end of the mowing season. This saves you time and helps the environment by returning nutrients from the leaves directly into your yard!

Please do not rake leaves into gutters, ditches, or the street - clogged storm drains can flood, and wet leaves blown into the street can cause slippery road conditions.

Thank you. For further information, contact Public Works at 902-634-8992.
