Parkway Leaf Collection Program
The Village’s annual fall curbside leaf collection program ended Friday, December 8.
Now that this program is complete, should you have any additional leaves, please rake and bag them and place them out for yard waste collection (with a sticker per bag or as part of your subscription) by next Wednesday, December 13 (the final day for yard waste collection this year).
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.
- Crews will work continuously through November, making four to five passes through each neighborhood. Place leaves at the curb by Monday, November 27 for the final collection pass.
- 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.
