Please remember that it is illegal to place branches and unwanted limbs/yard waste on Town & CDOT right-of-way property, which includes alleyways, as well as any property in the buyout program.

“Except by a permit issued as set forth in Subsection 11-2-10(b), no person shall in any manner obstruct any street, alley or sidewalk within the Town in any manner whatsoever, but shall at all times keep such streets, alleys and sidewalks free for the passage of vehicular and foot travel.” 
The Town will issue warnings to violations of right-of-ways obstructions, as stated in the Lyons Municipal Code; a summons will be issued if not mitigated after 30 days. 

Lyons Volunteers

If you are unable to haul yard waste to the park, you may submit a request to the Lyons Volunteers, at The Volunteers will coordinate with residents for help with pick-up.
