2012 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 22th thru November 30th by Allied Waste
at the time of your regularly scheduled yard waste 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 26th, 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
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
With everyone's cooperation and the Village's fall street-sweeping
operations, we expect to have a cleaner, safer fall leaf
