Leaf Collection Program

Leaf Vac Collection for 2019 has ended.  

Leaf Vac Collection for unincorporated areas of Lake County, Indiana will resume on October 28, 2019 and run through December 6, 2019. 


Guidelines for Curbside Leaf Collection

  • Avoid putting leaf piles around obstacles such as vehicles,mailboxes, power lines, guide wires, utility poles and sign posts.  Leaf piles will not be collected until relocated. 
  • Avoid placing leaf piles at least 30 feet from major intersections. 
  • Place leaf piles along the curb within three (3) feet of the street (do not place leaves in the street) and keep piles short in length.  Make piles high rather than long whenever possible. 
  • Avoid putting leaf piles in a ditch or on a curb with running or standing water. 
  • Leaf piles must be free of branches, grass clippings, garbage, rocks or any other foreign objects or chemicals. 
  • Residents should note that although best efforts will be made to remain on schedule, weather conditions and leaf volumes may affect pick up
