[ARCHIVED] Leaf Collection Underway

fall leaves

The Village leaf collection program begins in mid-October and continues through early December, weather permitting. The program provides residents with an alternate way to dispose of leaves. Residents who do not mulch may rake leaves into the street, next to the curb in front of their residence. Village crews attempt to collect the leaf piles from the streets every five to seven working days. Caution should be exercised so that leaves are not raked into sewer inlets or in front of fire hydrants. Do not rake twigs, branches, sticks, rocks, bottles, garden debris, etc. with the leaves, as such items may cause the collection equipment to malfunction. Residents are advised to wet down any loose leaf piles to keep them from blowing away. Avoid parking your vehicle on top of or adjacent to leaf piles, as parked vehicles may prevent Village crews from collecting the leaf piles.

The Public Works Department makes every effort to complete one cycle through the Village every five to seven working days. Due to the volume of leaves being encountered and weather uncertainties, it is impossible for the Village to guarantee leaf collection on a specific day. During the yard waste collection season (early April through mid-November), residents can place leaves into biodegradable kraft paper yard waste bags for pick-up. Yard waste bags should not exceed 40 pounds each.
