Brush Pick Up Rules & Regulations

Bruch pick up is in full force for the year. Please be aware of the Village of Tolono guidelines regarding brush pickup:

  • Brush pick up days are the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month (weather permitting) March-November. We will not make special pick ups unless there is a storm causing additional yard wasted. Please plan accordingly for regular pick up days.
  • Grass is NOT acceptable (not even in landscape waste bags).
  • Landscape bags must have a sticker obtained from Village Hall or it will not be picked up.
  • Brush pick up is not for the cleanup or removal of entire trees.
  • Limbs must be less than 6″ in diameter and 8′ long.
  • Dirt and rocks are NOT acceptable (not even in landscape waste bags).
  • Landscape timbers, railroad ties, wood fencing and other lumber is NOT acceptable

The above guidelines are set by ordinance (2020-O-10). For more information, please see 53.30-53.99 of the Village of Tolono Code of Ordinances or call us at 217-485-5212.

Side-by-Sides & Golf Carts

The Village of Tolono wants to remind everyone that Side-By-Side off-highway devices must be registered with the Village before they can be driven on our streets as do all golf carts.

The fine for failure to secure a permit when operating a golf cart and/or recreational off-highway device on Village streets is $250.

Please read Golf Carts & Other Similar Devices

If you have any questions please call Village Hall at 217-485-5212.

Leaf Collection

The Village of Tolono will conduct leaf collection on April 6th and 7th, and again on April 13th and 14th, weather permitting. Leaves will be collected by our leaf vacuum truck.

  • To avoid obstructing drainage and causing equipment damage, place leaves at curbside:
    • not in the drainage ditches or on drainage grates,
    • not on the sidewalks or edges of driveways and streets (but also not so far into yards that equipment vacuums can’t reach the leaves).
    • not over water meter covers or sewer caps, and
    • not over any other obstructions or items that may be sucked into the vacuum truck.
  • Do not mix leaves with trash, pumpkins, limbs, brush, sticks, rocks, bricks, or the like. Leaves containing these materials may be bypassed in order to prevent equipment damage and collection delays.
  • Do not wet leaves. Frozen leaves may damage vacuum equipment.
  • Do not block leaf piles with vehicles.
  • If you notice drainage grates clogged in your area, please call 217-485-5212 to request cleaning.

Brush Pickup

Brush pickup resumes Monday, March 1, 2021. Please see the attached notice for acceptable and non-acceptable items. Paper bags of landscape waste must have stickers purchased from Village Hall. Stickers are $3 each.

Village Maintenance crew requests that landscape waste be put as close to the road as possible. The ground is very soft currently and they would like to avoid putting ruts in yards. If waste is too far off the side of the road, they may not be able to pick up.

Sidewalk Replacement

Sidewalk panels throughout the Village of Tolono have been removed for either repair or replacement. Once these areas are removed, they are marked with yellow caution tape. Please use caution when walking or running in these areas. If the sidewalk repair/replacement is in or around your driveway, these residents may need to make plans to park elsewhere.

Sidewalk replacement will continue this week through next, pending weather (12/7-12/18). If there are sidewalk panels with a blue “X” in front of your home, please be sure to make room so the contractor can get to these areas to remove and replace.

Once the concrete is poured we ask that you do not walk or drive on the area for at least 48 hours.

Thank you!
