Yard debris (including grass clippings, leaves, and other organic yard waste) is collected at the curb on Mondays throughout the year. Yard debris should be placed in brown paper yard debris bags (and NOT in plastic bags), or bundled with twine.
Each fall the Village provides residents with some paper lawn and leaf bags to be used for leaves; leaves should NOT be raked into the street as the Village does not currently vacuum bulk leaf piles. Additional leaf bags are available in the Village Office while supplies last. Otherwise, residents may purchase them from a home supply store.
In the fall of 2017, beginning on Wednesday October 18, the Village will also provide leaf vacuuming service for residents, courtesy of Lee's Trees. Residents who wish to partake in this service are asked to rake their leaves as close to the curb as possible without putting them in the roadway gutter. Please inform your landscape crews of this requirement. Should it rain, leaves piled in the gutter will dam the water causing it to pond. Please avoid boxing in poles of leaves between cars both for easier accessibility for the collection crew, and safety of your vehicles.
Leaves on each street will be collected every other Wednesday, beginning October 18, in October and November, and possibly into December (weather permitting). Schedule updates will be circulated through the Village's email blasts via Constant Contact.
Christmas trees are collected as part of the regular weekly yard debris collection.
