Sanitation & Recycling

The City of Lyle contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection and all residential customers within the city limits are required to have recycling collection.

Most trash and debris, when properly bundled and/or contained properly, can be disposed of at curbside with your regular garbage service days. If assistance is needed or you have questions for the city, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

For questions specific to trash or recycling pick up, please call the waste management company directly.

Recycle Center

The City has a Recycle Center located behnd the City Maintenance building which is located on the corner of Grove Street and 2nd Street. Please do not leave anything on the ground because the bins are full.  Abuse of this could result in us losing this program that you pay for through your Mower County taxes.

Compost Pile

The City does maintain a compost pile, located next to the Caboose and Memry Gardens.  There are two piles - one for grass clippings and leaves and another for small sticks nad branches.  Residents are being asked to utilize this area instead of placing sticks and branches by the curb for pick up.  If you have large brnaches or a large quantity of branches, please contact city hall at 507-325-2311 and make arrangements for assistance.
