The Village appreciates our resident’s efforts to maintain their property and recognize that disposing of tree debris from Spring cleanup may be difficult. The Department of Public Works conducts a Large Branch Collection Program to assist residents.
Home owners are reminded that the Waste Management yard waste program includes the removal of bagged yard waste as well small branch pickup. Bundled branches up to 3 ½ inches in diameter, and no more than four (4) feet in length will be picked up by Waste Management from April 1st through December 15th. Please note that yard waste bags require the purchase of a yard waste sticker however, small branch pickup is free of charge.
The Large Branch Collection Program picks up branches meeting the following requirements:
Large branches (3 1/2 to 8 inches in diameter) from all trees and bushes except evergreens are eligible for pick-up.
Stack branches in the parkway with cut ends pointing to the curb.
Branches should be placed in the parkway no sooner than the weekend before the designated pickup week.
Contact Public Works at (847) 734-8800 Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM to get your address listed for pickup. Calls must be received no later than Friday 4:30 PM of the week prior to your scheduled pickup.
Items such as logs, lumber, paneling, bushes, stumps and evergreens are not part of the Village program as these items damage Village equipment. Contact Waste Management at 1-800-796-9696 for pickup guidelines for these items.
