The annual 6-week curbside leaf collection season for eligible households runs from October 21 through November 29.

Changes to the Leaf Collection Program:

  1. ALL eligible neighborhoods are serviced EVERY week during the 6-week leaf collection season.
  2. All LRS customers under the Village’s contract are assessed this fee on their fourth quarter (October) LRS bill. LRS will include a leaf collection flyer noting this charge and program details with each invoice.

To ensure the best leaf collection experience, follow these simple tips and reminders:

Leaf Collection DOs: 

  • 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.

Leaf Collection DON’Ts:

  • 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.

Residents are responsible for the disposal of any leaves after the last pick-up date by either working with a private landscape contractor or utilizing the normal curbside composting/yard waste collection program.
