CURBSIDE LEAF COLLECTION
ENDS ON DECEMBER 7TH
(leaves must be out to the curb by 7 a.m. on December 7th)
Leaf raking season is here again! Leaves raked in rows along the curbside are picked up by a large vacuum machine used by Public Works crews until the end of November (depending on the weather).
There is no set pick-up schedule and the Village is unable to take requests for special pick-ups. Public Works will do their best to make one pass down each street per week depending on weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances.
Residents should place leaves in a pile or row in the parkway, between the sidewalk and curb as near to the street as possible. Leaves should not be placed in the streets because it will clog storm drains when it rains, potentially causing flooding. In areas without curbs, leaves should be placed in long rows on the grass or parkway at the edge of the street. Do not mix leaves with branches or grass clippings. These things will damage the leaf machine.
