The City of Lodi's annual leaf removal program is approaching its final cycle, with Jan. 7 the final pick-up day. The remaining pickup days are shown in the schedule below.
Following the final pick-up day of Jan. 7, residents may dispose of leaves by placing them in yard-and-garden carts provided by Waste Management. Leaves may not be placed in the street after Jan. 7 and will not be picked up by the City.
Residents are reminded that street sweeping begins at 4 a.m., with the leaf collection crews following at 6:30 a.m. The City will not collect leaf piles placed in the street after collection crews pass until the next regularly scheduled pickup. Please rake leaves beyond the toe of the gutter so any rain can flow into the storm drain unobstructed.
A map of the City's 10 leaf pickup districts is shown below.
Some tips for residents:
- Leaf piles containing prunings, lawn clippings or flowers will NOT be picked up.
- Do not place leaves in plastic bags. The bags will not be picked up.
- Please do not park cars on the street. They interfere with pickup.
Curbside pickup for yard waste occurs biweekly throughout the year. Residents may have up to three yard-and-garden cans at no additional cost. Request additional cans by calling Waste Management at 369-8274.
