2014 LEAF PROGRAM
Fall and leaf season will soon be upon us, bringing with its arrival the leaf pick-up program. The program is designed to keep the Village's streets cleaner and safer, as well as to help keep leaves out of our sewers and storm drains. The most important thing to remember is that leaves cannot be
placed in the street for removal!
Free, unlimited, weekly curbside collection of leaves in kraft paper yard waste bags.
Plastic bags will not be picked up.
Please place bagged leaves in the parkway in front of your home, along the curb.
Do not place in the street.
Pick-up will run the week of October 20th through the week of November 23rd at the time of your regularly-scheduled yard waste pick-up. Leaves will be picked up by our waste hauler, Republic Services. It is important to note that the last pick-up of bagged leaves for homeowners in town south of the train tracks will be November 24th, and the last pick of bagged leaves for homeowners north of the train tracks will be November 27th.
All other yard waste will require a yard waste sticker.
Bags may not exceed 34 gallons or 60 pounds.
Please have the bags placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled pick-up date.
In some cases, due to volume, collection may run behind (i.e., Monday collection being completed on Tuesday); however, every household will receive one collection each of these six weeks. Brush and/or other yard waste (other than leaves) requires a sticker.
You may also choose to keep your leaves on your property to be composted for use as mulch. The Village Forester highly recommends the use of compost for keeping plants and trees healthy.

should never be placed in the street. Homeowners
or landscape contractors who place leaves in the street
will be subject to a fine of $75 for the first offence, increasing for subsequent offences.
With everyone's cooperation and the Village's fall street-sweeping
operations, we expect to have a cleaner, safer fall leaf
