Fall Leaf Collection Program

Please note that crews start at 7 a.m. in the morning. If you have a landscape service, please beware that leaf collection and hauling is likely a part of your service.

The Village's annual curbside leaf collection program begins in mid-October each year and continues through the end of November. The Village's garbage and recycling collection contractor, LRS, collects leaves as part of their contract with the Village and leaf collection crews are expected to complete five to seven passes through the Village.
Location Information of the Leaf Collection Crews
Want to know when the leaf collection crews will be in your neighborhood? First, determine which area you live in by studying the map below. Second, check this webpage for daily updates that specify where the leaf collections are working and where they anticipate starting the next day.
If you are participating in the program, please remember the following:
- Pile leaves in a row along the parkway in front of your property. Leaf piles in the street are a traffic hazard and clog the storm sewers, which can cause flooding.
- A long, low row of leaves is better than a single large pile and helps limit the blowing of leaves into the street or back to the yard.
- Residents who use a landscape contractor are urged to have the contractor remove leaves at the time their yard is serviced (this is often included).
As a reminder, the use of gasoline powered leaf blowers is permitted from September 15 to December 15. Commercial landscape maintenance contractors may operate 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday to Friday and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Work is prohibited on Sundays and holidays.
