The Village’s annual leaf collection program provides residents with an alternate way to dispose of their leaves. Residents who do not mulch or bag their leaves may simply rake leaves to the curb or carriage walk line the night before their scheduled pickup. Leaves should be placed in piles no greater than 5' in width. Beginning the week of October 22, 2012 and continuing through November 15, 2012, Public Works crews will make one pass by each house in the Village each week during the program. Please do not put out leaves more than one day prior to your scheduled pickup day. Vacuum hose machines are used to pick up leaves. Leaves should be raked neatly, as close to the curb as possible, so long as they are not placed in the street or on carriage walks or sidewalks. Doing this causes safety hazards to pedestrians and drivers.
The map below highlights the quadrants of the Village and their associated pick-up day of the week. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Public Works Department at 847.317.7245.
Here are some reminders for leaf pickup:
Following the final pickup in your neighborhood, remaining leaves must be bagged and a yard waste sticker adhered for regular refuse collections on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. December 11 and 12 will be the final yard waste collections by Waste Management this year.
