Free Leaf Pick up – East Side
October 26, 2015
FREE curb-side leaf pick-up will run from mid-October through late November based on the schedule below. Residents should place their leaves at the curb on the appropriate Monday for pickup during the week.
Residents living on the WEST side of the River, pick-up will begin on Mondays the week of: October 19, November 2 and November 16
Residents living on the EAST side of the River, pick-up will begin on Mondays the week of: October 26, November 9 and November 23
Leaves must be raked to the curb by 6:00 a.m. on Monday of the pick-up week. Leaf piles must be free of any foreign materials including branches, plants, rocks and landscape waste. Leaves should be raked in a row parallel to the street, at least 1 foot and no more than 5 feet back from the curb. Piles should be less than 2 feet in height. Leaves MUST be out at the curb by 6 a.m. on Monday of the pick-up week; however, leaves may be picked up at any time during that entire week. A daily log is kept of streets that have been serviced and trucks will not go back down streets to pick up on streets that have already been serviced.
To allow better access for the leaf collection equipment, please keep leaves away from mailboxes, ditches, pipes and culverts. Residents are encouraged to park in driveways or garages, and not on the street in front of leaf piles. Snow, rain, freezing temperatures or mechanical difficulties may delay or halt curbside leaf collection. For Residents who choose to bag their leaves, please note Waste Management will pick up leaf filled Kraft paper bags free, no stickers required, on Fridays during October and November. All other landscape waste will require a sticker. The last pick up for leaves and landscape waste (sticker required) will be the last Friday in November. Landscape pick-up will resume in April. For questions regarding the free leaf pick-up, please contact the Village Hall or call Waste Management at 800-796-9696 for other questions.
