The Village’s annual curbside leaf collection program began Monday, October 16. The Maintenance Department has been making regular routes throughout the Village to provide leaf collection to residents which will continue through December 29, 2017.
As the volume of leaves increases, the black and white advisory signs will be posted at the entrance to your neighborhood in advance of the crews, projecting the estimated day of collection in your area.
Crews will stay on schedule as much as possible. Weather, equipment, parking on the street, and debris mixed with leaves all affect the Village’s ability to collect leaves.
Tips When Raking Your Leaves:
• Please avoid placing leaves in the street to keep gutters and storm drains from clogging.
• Please avoid parking in front of leaf piles; crews are not able to pick up piles with access issues.
• Never place leaves around fire hydrants, mailboxes, sign posts, utility poles or guy wires.
