SPRING RESIDENTIAL LEAF COLLECTION
As a part of the Solid Waste Services provided to Village residents, crews collect loose, un-bagged leaves directly from your curb or roadside. Two rounds of leaf collection will take place this spring. Weather permitting, leaf collection will begin on April 3. To have your leaves collected, please follow the steps you see below.
• Click here to identify your collection zone and dates.
• Have leaves ready by 7:00 a.m. on your collection dates.
• To prepare your leaves, rake loose, fallen leaves into a pile at your curb or on your roadside.
• Leaves must be within 6 feet of the road.
• Keep leaves off of the asphalt.
• For residents with curb and gutter, place loose leaves on the grass by your curb.
• For residents with a ditch, place loose leaves on the grass along the roadside of the ditch.
• Because leaves are collected with a vacuum (shown in the image above), they must be piled loose.
• Bagged leaves or grass, branches, and other yard waste will not be collected.
• Do not mix other yard waste, such as potted/garden plants or branches, into your pile of leaves. Doing so can damage the leaf collection vacuum and may cause costly delays. Leaves mixed with other yard waste will not be collected.
Please keep in mind that though collection staff abides by the schedule above, there are certain circumstances that may delay collection by one or more days. These circumstances could include: unanticipated delays due to weather, emergency situations that may draw staff away from their regular duties, or damage to collection equipment that would require repair or unscheduled service.
If you miss your scheduled collection day, leaves and other yard waste may also be taken to the Residential Recycling Center at 8000 128th Street. The site will open for on-season hours on March 25 and remain open through December 2 (weather permitting). The site will remain open on Saturdays year-round.
