Leaf Pick-up and Street Sweeping
Please put leaves in brown biodegradable bags only and place bags near garbage and recycling for pick-up. Bags can be purchased at local grocery and hardware stores. Leaves cannot be picked-up if they are placed in plastic bags or in the street. Pick-up continues until Monday, December 5 . Do not put or blow leaves into the street. It clogs the sewers and causes unnecessary flooding and maintenance costs.
Fall is a great time to mulch leaves to sprinkle over plants and shrubs to help retain water and protect them over the long winter months. You can also skip the raking and simply mow over your leaves a few times and leave them on your lawn to add nutrients and provide protection from winter weather. The Department of Public Works will sweep Village curbs through late November. Please check signs on your block for parking restrictions. For more information, call 847-671-8252.
