Leaf Collection Coming Soon!
Fall is approaching, which means our annual fall leaf collection is just around the corner! Here’s what you need to know, along with some Do’s and Don’ts:
Leaf Collection Dates:
Start Date: October 23, 2023
End Date: December 1, 2023
Rake leaves to the curb by Monday at 7 a.m. each week during collection season. Collection may not necessarily occur on the same day every week.
If you have a landscaper, discuss your options and notify them of the leaf pickup schedule before the season begins. Some landscapers may charge up to $20/week extra to haul away leaves. You may experience a net-savings because of the Village’s leaf collection program by simply asking your landscaper to place leaves along your parkway and not haul them away.
Do not place leaves in the street. This creates hazardous driving conditions, clogs storm sewers causing localized flooding, and violates the Village Code.
Do not mix brush, garden waste, tree limbs, vines, or other yard waste with the leaves. These materials can lead to equipment failure and/or injury and must be properly disposed of through the Village’s weekly curbside composting program.
Do not block access to the leaves with cars or other obstructions. If the truck/vacuum cannot access the leaves, they cannot remove them.
