Autumn Leaves Pick-up Schedule

Trees in autumn

Fall is approaching and with it the laborious task of raking fallen leaves.  We recommend that you mulch your leaves and return this beneficial material back to your lawn and landscape. 

Leaves may be raked to the street pavement edge where they will be collected four times by the Village. In order to have an efficient and effective program, your cooperation is needed in adhering to the following procedures:

DO NOT bag your leaves if you want the Village to pick them up.  The equipment we use can only pick up piles of loose leaves.

Rake ONLY LEAVES into a pile.  NO shrub clippings, sticks, or other debris are permitted - these materials clog our equipment.

DO NOT pile leaves on the street pavement.  Leaves are to be placed behind the curb or edge of pavement.

Please place the leaves a day or two prior to the dates listed below.  Any leaves placed afterwards will not be collected until the next date.  Later pickups are subject to weather conditions.

Inquiries regarding the above schedule may be directed to the Public Works Department at 630-368-5270.
