Special Spring Leaf Collection
Due to last fall’s late leaf drop followed by a late November snow storm, the Village will be offering a spring curbside leaf collection program for ALL Village residents.
The special spring leaf collection is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 1. If weather prohibits the Village from collecting leaves the week of April 1. The special leaf collection will be moved to the following week and begin on Monday, April 8.
The collection will take place over the period of one week. Leaves must be placed on the street by 7:00 a.m. on the Monday the program begins. Public Works will make one pass down all streets in the Village to collect leaves. Leaves placed after the deadline will not be collected.
Should you have any questions or experience any problems with the program, please call the Public Works Department at (847) 734-8800 Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
