County, village issue reminders about fall leaf collection
LOMBARD – As leaves begin to fall from the trees this season, DuPage County and the Village of Lombard are encouraging residents to be proactive about properly collecting and disposing yard waste.
Residents should regularly rake fallen leaves to prevent them from building up along curbs, gutters and storm sewers, because this prevents storm water from entering the drainage system and could cause major flooding.
Leaves that enter the sewer eventually make their way to local waterways where they decompose and release phosphorous, which is harmful to the water system.
