Effective the week of Oct. 8 and continuing through Nov. 9 (weather permitting), the City of Estherville will collect leaves and lawn rakings free of charge to residents. Yard waste must be in plain plastic bags, which are securely closed and placed at the curb. Collection of yard waste will normally begin on Mondays extending into additional days if needed to cover the entire city.
Please use city-metered bags for usual solid waste and non-metered bags for yard waste. These items will be disposed of at separate locations and will not be collected at the same time.
Residents are also reminded of the ordinance change that went into effect in May of 2004 banning the burning of leaves and yard waste on property less than 1.5 acres.
If you have any questions regarding this ordinance change, please contact the city office at 362-7771.
