Leaf Collection

Fall leaves are scheduled for pick up by Waste Management from October 1st to November 30th. Leaves must be in biodegradable bags and placed out for collection with your regular garbage; no prepaid sticker is required on the regular pick up day during this time.

Plastic bags are not acceptable at any time.

Unlike most communities, Channahon does allow outdoor burning of leaves and small limbs within the corporate limits.


If you choose to burn your leaves, please do so safely. Leaves can only be burned on private property and burning is not permitted in the right-of-way or on any street. Keep your fire at a manageable size, do not leave fires unattended and avoid burning on windy days. If a fire gets out of control, call 911 immediately. As a reminder, the burning of grass clippings, large branches or garbage is prohibited.
