Leftover Halloween Candy Collection
The Deerfield Police Department will be collecting leftover Halloween candy from November 1 through November 8. There will be a box in the Deerfield Police Department lobby, open 24/7, for donations.
Candy will be donated to a number of charitable organizations including Operation North Pole, NICASA, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, The Veteran’s Closet and North Chicago Community Partners.
Waste Management is now accepting pumpkins in with regular yard waste pickup. Remove all candles and other non-organic materials from pumpkins first.
Yard waste collection runs through December 15 and takes place on your regular garbage pickup day. Yard waste must be placed in a 30-gallon paper bag and placed at the curb with a yard waste sticker affixed for collection. Get more information here
