Free Fall Leaf Pickup ends November 26th!
The City of Darien Free Fall Leaf Pickup will end November 26th. Leaves are picked up on your normal refuse day. Leaves should be placed in brown kraft yard waste bags or in plastic garbage cans. If garbage cans are used they must have a permanent “YARD WASTE ONLY” label attached to the front of the can so the driver can identify it as leaf pickup. These labels are available free of charge at city hall. Residents are not permitted to rake leaves into the street. Raking leaves into the street can cause serious local flooding for you and your neighbors. For more information please call 630-852-5000.
