Green Leaf Bags
The Town of Lee does not pick up green waste, but we do take leaves. The bags provided to you are for leaves only, and no grass, sod, pine cones, etc. are to be included.
The reason for this is that the disposal site we use is regulated and inspected by the DEC and if anything other than leaves is found in the bags, they will revoke our permit and we will no longer be able to take your leaves at all. Please keep this in mind so that we may continue this program for years to come!
Leaf pickup ongoing EXCEPT the months of June, July and August – there is no set schedule.
The Town of Lee Highway Department picks up leaves in early Spring and in the Fall. The Fall pick up schedule is based on weather factors and past experience and usually coincides with the major leaf-fall times.
Brush pickup on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month is the general time set aside for this unless the crew is working on higher priority duties.
Leaf Pick-Up Rules
Leaves are required to be in BIODEGRADABLE BAGS.
Bags are available for FREE at the Lee Town Hall or Delta Plumbing. Please limit the number of
