Fall Leaf Collection

2023 Fall Leaf Pick-Up

          The City of Lock Haven will be conducting leaf pick-up this season from 6:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. from Monday, November 6, 2023, through Friday, November 17, 2023. 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 12:30 A.M. to 7:30 A.M. Residents are encouraged to use this method rather than bagging leaves. Leaves must be placed in the gutter or between the curb and sidewalk. 

For those unable to sweep leaves onto the street, bagged leaves will be picked up on Monday and Tuesday November 6 & 7, 2023 and Monday and Tuesday November 13 & 14, 2023. Bags must be placed at the curbside for pick-up the night before. Bags must weigh no more than 50 pounds. 

Sunset Pines leaf pick-up is from November 15, 2023, through November 17, 2023. Residents are requested to have their leaves onto the shoulder of the road the day before. 

Friday, November 10, 2023, is a holiday and no collection will occur on this day. 


All leaves left at the curb most only contain leaves. Anything else may damage the trucks and residents could be cited and fined under Chapter 273 Littering of the City Code. If residents have larger items, there is a dumpster available at the Second Avenue Public Works Facility that you may haul and dispose of. 



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.
