How do I get my leaves yard waste picked up by the City?

Leaf vacuuming is a service provided by the City during the fall season. Simply rake your leaves to the edge of your front lawn (NOT into the street) and they will be picked up as soon as possible. Leaf vaccuuming continues throughout the fall until snow begins.

Rock River Disposal picks up bagged yard waste from April 1 – November 30, weather permitting. Yard waste must be put in brown paper bags or bundled in 3 ft. sections with twine and placed into a garbage can marked with an X.

Why did my garbage pick-up price go up?

The City works to keep the cost of living in Loves Park as low as possible. Garbage pickup prices do increase over time due to increased costs for things such as fuel and to adjust for inflation.
