Village Starts Leaf Pick-up Service


Please place leaves in brown biodegradable bags only and place them near your trash 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. Do not put or blow leaves into the street. It clogs the street sweepers and sewers and causes unnecessary flooding and maintenance costs. Also, remember that burning leaves is not permitted in Franklin Park. Consider mulching your leaves to sprinkle over plants and shrubs to help retain water and to protect them over the 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. No Burn Ordinance The Franklin Park fire Department reminds residents that fire pits are not legal in our Village. There is a "No Open Burning" ordinance in Franklin Park, despite what home centers and stores will tell you. If you have questions, please contact the Fire Department at 847- 671-8798 for more information.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Can it really be getting close to holiday time already? It seems like the kids just went back to school and now we are getting ready for holiday festivities. Fall gives us the opportunity to clean up our yards and nourish our lawns before the snow falls. One of the best ways to do that is to simply mow over the fallen leaves and allow them to stay on the ground and feed the grass over the winter.

You can also mulch leaves and scatter them onto vegetable gardens and flower beds. Not only do you avoid the work of raking and bagging leaves, you are also choosing a sustainable and cost-effective method of cleaning up your yard. You save by not purchasing bags and the Village saves on the cost to haul leaves away!If you prefer that the Village pick up your leaves, you must put them in the brown biodegradable bags available at local grocery and hardware stores. Place the brown bags near your trash and recycling containers.

Leaves will NOT be picked up if they are in plastic bags, put in the street, or deposited in the garbage or recycling bins. Most importantly, do NOT sweep or blow your leaves in to the street. That is a violation of Village Ordinance and can result in a citation. Leaves clog our sewers, causing costs to clear sewers with heavy equipment and personnel. The leaves, grass or debris can also cause flooding and can damage Village street sweepers. Remember, burning leaves is never permitted.

 

Giving Thanks

What are you thankful for? I know I am always grateful for having the opportunity to serve my community as Mayor in a town that I love. I deeply appreciate our Village Board. Together we share a devotion to our family-friendly neighborhoods and a respect for our hardworking taxpayers. We also share our appreciation with our dedicated and professional staff who make living and working in our Village a great experience. We hope you have many blessings to count this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!
