From the Service Department
Yard Waste Program, Weekend Rubbish, and Document Shredding

Released: 1/31/2015
Yard Waste Program
In the spring of 2015 the Service Department will resume yard waste collection. Last year Lyndhurst residents placed over 1,600 tons of yard waste to the curb. This material was taken to a compost facility in Willoughby and made into organic soil supplements. This diversion from the landfill saved taxpayers approximately $60,000 in landfill fees.
Please remember that all organic waste including leaves, grass, hedge clippings and garden plants must be placed in paper yard waste bags (available at most retail outlets) or in designated yard waste cans. "Yard Waste Only" stickers are available for pickup at the service department during regular business hours: Mon-Fri 7:00am - 3:30pm. Just place these stickers on your old garbage cans so we can easily identify your yard waste only cans. Place all yard waste cans and bags at least 3 feet from rubbish and recycling carts on your treelawn. Please remember these yard waste cans and bags are for yard waste only - yard waste in plastic bags will not be accepted. Please have all waste containers to the curb by 7:00AM the day of your pick up.
Weekend Rubbish
The weekend rubbish program will resume at the service garage on April 4, 2015. We will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 5th. The hours of operation are 11:30am to 3:30pm both Saturday and Sunday. This program will also accept household hazardous waste. This service is only available to Lyndhurst residents, so please bring an ID for proof of residency.
Document Shredding
The City of Lyndhurst has scheduled another secure Community Shredding Day. Please be sure to bring proof of residency to the Lyndhurst City Hall parking lot on Saturday May 2, 2015 from 11:30am to 3:30pm.
