Waste Haulers and Curbside Recycling 

Curbside recycling is required in the City of Lebanon and can be arranged through your licensed waste hauler.  If needed, curbside recycling containers can be acquired free of charge from the City of Lebanon Highway Garage.  These containers are to be used solely for the purpose of holding recyclable materials.  Please do not place trash in them.

Leaf Pick-up
Each fall the City of Lebanon picks up leaves curbside from mid/late October to early December.  Exact dates will be published via public service announcements, City newsletters and the city website.  Residents are requested to abide by the following guidelines for leaf collection: 
  • Leaves shall be placed curbside one foot from curb line so as to not hinder stormwater run-off.
  • Vehicles should park at least 10 feet from leaf piles.  Leaves under vehicles will not be removed and could cause a fire hazard.
  • Do not mix branches, grass, ornamental grass, garbage, bricks or concrete block in with the leaves.
  • Do not bag leaves.
  • Only place leaves in the street just prior to your scheduled collection day.  Crews will do their best to adhere to the posted schedule, however, the volume of leaves, weather and equipment failure may cause a delay.  
  • Do not place leaves out after the end of the fall leaf pickup season.  Placement of leaves in the streets after the last scheduled pickup date results in unsightly streetscapes, and with the onset of winter and snowfall, create very difficult conditions.  Additionally, in mid-December focus is shifted to ready equipment for snow and ice removal operations. 
  • However, residents may continue to take leaves to the City's yard waste facility after the last leaf pickup.
  • Questions regarding leaf pick up should be directed to the Department of Public Works at 717-228-4490.



Yard Waste Pick-Up

In the spring and fall of each year, generally in April and in October, the City will collect yard waste curbside.  Exact dates will be published via public service announcements, City newsletters and our web site.
While we ask that residents have their yard waste placed curbside by the first day of collection, city crews will be working the entire week collecting yard waste.  Once an area is cleaned, no additional materials may be placed curbside for collection.
Yard waste materials must be placed in the street, 1 foot from the curb for collection. Vehicles must be parked at least 10 feet from the yard waste piles to allow room for city equipment to maneuver while cleaning up the yard waste. Branches longer than 6 feet in length cannot be accepted. Please do not block the storm sewers when placing items curbside for collection.
Do not place materials curbside until the weekend prior to collection. In case of rain, this will help prevent the chance of materials being washed into the catch basins and clogging the storm sewers. Do not place materials curbside after our crew has passed your street. Our crew will make one pass by each street.
Collection will include hedge trimmings, branches and garden residue. (Lawn grass, ornamental grass and non-organic materials will not be picked up.  Please do not place bricks, pavers and other similar items in the piles.  Crews cannot see those items under the piles and the items could damage city equipment.
City residents unable to participate in curbside collection may purchase an access card for the City of Lebanon Yard Waste Recycling Facility located at 893 N. 8th Street.   The initial fee for a yearly residential access card is $40.00.  The annual renewal fee is $35.00.  The annual fee for an access card for commercial use (including landscapers) is $500.00 (one card per account).  Card sharing is NOT permitted.    There is a $25.00 fee for replacement of misplaced or lost cards. 
For more information please call the Department of Public Works at 717-228-4490



Bulk Waste Drop-Off 

In the fall, generally around September of each year, the City may schedule a specific quadrant of the City for a Neighborhood Clean-Up Program.  This program affords citizens the opportunity to discard bulk items that may present a sanitation and/or fire hazard.
Residents are responsible to deposit acceptable materials in roll-off containers that will be placed within the City of Lebanon Yard Waste Drop off Center, located at 893 North 8th Street.
The facility normally will be open during the hours of  11AM and 6PM during the project.
  • Resident must provide proof that they live within the area designated for clean up purposes, i.e. driver’s license.
  • Residents are not to put items curbside before or after the designated dates of the clean up. Items placed curbside after the scheduled clean up or outside the designated clean up area will not be picked up and residents will receive a fine for illegal dumping.
  • Residents are only to put items curbside if they are unable to transport materials to drop off location.
    We only accept car tires, no oversized tires.
The following items will NOT be accepted:
  • Electronics – The GLRA has a free electronics drop off center. For more information call 717-867-5790.
  • Pesticides, Herbicides and Insecticides (Household Hazardous Waste – 1-800-449-7587).
