Fall Leaf Collection

2021 Fall Leaf Pick-Up

            The City will be conducting Leaf Pick-Up this season from 12:00 Midnight until 8:00 A.M. using the sweeper route schedule.

            This program will be in effect from Monday, November 8, 2021 through Thursday, November 18, 2021.  Residents are requested to sweep their leaves onto the streets on the day before their street is scheduled for sweeping.  That day is listed on signs on each street indicating that parking is prohibited from 12:30AM to 6:30AM.  This will be allowable only on these dates.  Anyone putting leaves onto the streets before or after these days could be cited and fined.  Residents are encouraged to use this method rather than bagging leaves.  Leaves should be placed in the gutter or between the curb and sidewalk.

            For those unable to sweep leaves to the street, bagged leaves will be picked up on Monday and Tuesday, November 8 & 9, 2021 and Monday and Tuesday, November 15 & 16, 2021 prior to 8AM.  Bags must be placed at the curbside for pick-up.  Bags must weigh no more than 50 lbs.

            Sunset Pines leaf pick-up has been scheduled for November 16-18, 2021, daylight hours.  Residents are requested to rake their leaves onto the shoulder of the road on these days only prior to 8AM.

The burning of leaves is strictly prohibited, as stated in City Code §340-11.
Violation of this ordinance can result in a fine of up to $1,000


The City of Lock Haven would like to remind City residents that they can dump yard waste at the City’s Public Works Facility located at 99 Second Avenue in Lock Haven between the hours of 7 A.M. and 3:30 P.M. This is only available to the City of Lock Haven residents. All residents must schedule an appointment by contacting the Public Works Staff Assistant at 570-893-5917 option 0. City residents must display their driver’s license to verify their address. Only the following approved materials will be accepted, small trees, limbs, brush, shrubs, grass, leaves, and stumps with no dirt. Small trees and limbs must be neatly trimmed to save space in the dumpster. Absolutely NO TRASH or FOOD WASTE allowed. City Public Works can help with heavier items if arrangements are made ahead of time.
