Leaf pickup will begin October 10th and is scheduled for every Monday and Tuesday through the end of December. Collection of leaves will be weather dependent. The leaf vacuum has difficulty handling wet or frozen leaves. In the event that weather prevents a scheduled leaf pickup from taking place, leaves will be picked as soon as weather permits.
Please rake the leaves to the edge of the roadway and ensure that leaf piles are free of sticks, limbs, rocks and dirt. These items can damage the equipment and delay leaves from being collected. Please also ensure that leaf piles are easily accessible from the roadway and away from vehicles, power poles, mail boxes and other obstructions.
As a reminder, the burning of leaves inside of Village limits is prohibited by ordinance but we encourage community members to consider mulching some of their leaves. This will help return nutrients to lawns, keep our air clear of smoke as well as saving time and effort from raking leaves. Please feel free to call the Village office if you have any questions or concerns. (217) 485-5212
