Lanark News

Important changes for the leaf and brush pick-up rules.

The Maintenance Department will have two more leaf pick-up days, May 2nd and May 9th.

These will be the final 2 days of the leaf pick-up program for the Spring. Leaf pick-up will resume in the fall season, and continue until the first measurable snowfall.

Maintenance will continue to collect brush year-round throughout the city.

Crews will collect brush every Monday as long as the weather is permitting. Please be advised that other duties may arise that are a priority and may push brush pick-up to a different day. Major storms may also affect the schedule, and notice of any special brush collection will be posted here on the city website.
