Last yard waste collection of 2014 is Nov. 25


The final yard waste pick-up day of 2014 is November 25. Be sure to stop in to Village Hall, prior to November 25, to pick-up your yard waste bags and stickers, and round out your seasonal clean-up of fallen leaves and other yard waste before winter!

Leaves can be disposed of in Star Disposal yard waste bags or non-Star Disposal yard waste bags. Non-Star Disposal yard waste bags require a Star Disposal sticker in order to be collected. Star Disposal stickers must be purchased and placed on each non-Star Disposal yard waste bag to be collected.

All yard waste bags should be placed at the curb for collection on your regularly scheduled Tuesday garbage days.

Residents are reminded that raking or blowing leaves into the streets is prohibited by Village ordinance. When leaves fill the streets and enter the storm inlets, the Village's storm system becomes clogged -- negatively impacting many residents. Individuals who are witnessed raking leaves into the streets are subject to fines.

Yard waste collection resumes in April.

For questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at 708-503-7702.
