Fall Leaf Collection Program

UPDATE – THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2019

Program Information
The Village's annual curbside leaf collection program began in October and will finish in the second week of December. This year, the Village's garbage and recycling collection contractor, LRS, will collect leaves on behalf of the Village. 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.

Contact Public Works at (847) 835-4134 with questions.
