2013 LEAF PROGRAM

Fall and leaf season will soon be upon us, bringing with its arrival the leaf pick-up program.  It is designed to keep the Village's streets cleaner and safer and to help keep leaves out of Flagg Creek Water Reclamation District's sewers and storm drains.  The most important thing to remember is that leaves cannot be placed in the street for removal!

The leaf pick-up program options are:

  • Free unlimited weekly curbside - (please place bagged leaves in the parkway in front of your home along the curb) - collection of leaves in Kraft paper yard waste bags (plastic bags will not be picked up) from October 21st thru November 29th by Allied Waste at the time of your regularly scheduled yard waste pick-up. Allied Waste will extend Bagged LEAVES to December 6th with STICKERS on your regular scheduled trash pick up. It is important to note that the last pick-up of bagged leaves for homeowners in town south of the tracks will be November 25th, and the last pick of bagged leaves for homeowners north of the tracks will be November 29th. 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. 
  • You may also choose to keep your leaves on your property to be composted for use as mulch.  The Village Forester highly recommend the use of compost for keeping plants and trees healthy.

For more information on each of these options, please visit www.villageofhinsdale.org and click on LEAF REMOVAL.  Remember, leaves 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 and up after their first offense.

With everyone's cooperation and the Village's fall street-sweeping operations, we expect to have a cleaner, safer fall leaf season.
