Department of Public Works




The Street Department will provide our citizens with great services throughout the year.  We want our citizens to know if they have any type of Street Department concerns or problems they can call us and we will handle the problem in a timely manner. We strive to do this in a most cost-effective way.

Stormwater Standards

Under state and federal regulations, the city is required to establish a regulatory mechanism for regulating stormwater quality management. Therefore, the city code is supplemented with this document to include stormwater quality in addition to quantity.

Lebanon Standards with Appendices A thru C

The City offers two types of Recycling services for residents. The city has curbside Recycling where residents may have their recycling picked up every other Wednesday at their home for a small fee on their Lebanon Utilities bill. Residents need to contact Lebanon Street Department at 765-482-8870 to set this up.

Residents who have curbside recycling will have a recycling bin dropped off for them to use. Please use only this bin, it is the only thing they will pick up. If you have questions, call Waste Management.

Residents may also utilize the drop off recycling at 324 North Mt. Zion Road on Monday through Friday each week from 7:30am until 3:30pm. Feel free to stop by the office to pick up a paper that lists the items that can be submitted for recycling. 



Maintenance of Streets, Alleys, Right-of-Ways We take care of all City Streets by sweeping them and filling potholes throughout the year. Every year, as needed, selected streets and alleys are repaved. We also take care of all City signs. If you have a sign that is in need of repair please go to the forms on this website and fill out the information.

Limb Removal: Starting in July 2020, The Lebanon Street Department will ONLY be picking up limbs on the 2nd week of each month. Limbs will only be picked up from April to September. If you have limbs that need to be picked up other than this time you may take them to GreenCycle at 4227 S. Perry Worth Road. 

Street Sweepers will periodically come by and sweep your streets.

The sweepers pick up debris off the road and spray water down to clean the road.

Leaf Season starts the third week of October and runs through the first week in December(weather permitting). Again, we are asking residents to put their leaves out on the street next to the curb, away from parked cars, signs, telephone poles, or any other object that would keep the leaf machine from getting to the leaves. Leaves will be picked up the same day as your trash is picked up unless it rains and the leaf machines will not run in the rain. Leaves will be picked up the following day or when we are able to get to them (weather permitting). Leaf Machines will not be able to pick up any tall decorative grass clippings, garden plants, or flowers. This will have to be bagged up to put out with your trash or call Ray’s Trash Service to make other arrangements. Limbs cannot be mixed with leaves or leaves will not be picked up.

Limbs will not be picked up during leaf season. Any resident that cuts down a tree the limbs will have to be taken to GreenCycle at 4227 S. Perry Worth Road.

Lebanon Stormwater

 Welcome to Lebanon Stormwater

The federal Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, and Endangered Species Act require the city to manage stormwater runoff to protect water quality in rivers and streams, protect watershed health, and protect groundwater as a drinking water resource.

Stormwater runoff is generated when precipitation from rain and snowmelt events flows over land or impervious surfaces and does not percolate into the ground. As the runoff flows over the land or impervious surfaces (paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops), it accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment or other pollutants that could adversely affect water quality if the runoff is discharged untreated. The primary method to control stormwater discharges is the use of best management practices (BMPs).

The city works with citizens, businesses, and property owners to increase public awareness of stormwater issues and promote private stormwater management efforts.

Please report any of the following issues to the Storm Water Service Center at 765-482-8870.

  • clogged or slow moving storm drains
  • anything being dumped into a storm drain
  • anyone tampering with a storm drain
  • any excess lawn debris on or near a storm drain or in a swale
  • anyone filling in a swale to level it off
  • inadequate drainage of a swale
  • any sink holes
