Piling leaves in the street would directly violate Village ordinances. Street sweepers are not designed to handle a large volume of leaves, and doing so can damage the sweeper. Additionally, piling leaves in the street would also limit the performance of our sewers, as they would clog the sewer intakes and inhibit proper drainage. To properly dispose your leaves, please follow the procedures for yard waste disposal, i.e. using garbage cans labelled "yard waste" or biodegradable paper bags on garbage pickup day.
Yard waste pickup is handled by Village garbage contractor Groot and is picked up on Fridays, along with residents' regular trash and recycling pickup. Yard waste must be displayed in 32-gallon containers marked with at least two Village yard waste stickers or in biodegradable paper bags which are folded at the top. Yard waste that is too large for bags (such as branches or brush) may be tied up using biodegradable twine and left at the curb with other yard waste.
Brush must be placed at the curb by 7am every Monday. It may take crews more than one day to complete pick-up. Preparation• Branches are to be neatly placed curbside with the cut ends toward the street. Unorganized or tangled brush piles will not be collected and the resident will be asked to re-stack the pile.• Only branches from trees and bushes (up to eight inches in diameter at the cut end) will be eligible for pick-up.• Branches may be any length, though the ends must be cleanly cut with no attached root systems.• Items larger than eight inches in diameter, materials such as construction wood, branches with nails or spikes, wooden fence pieces/doors, firewood logs, rose bushes, poison ivy, small hedge/ evergreen trimmings, and yard rakings cannot be mulched and must be disposed of by the resident through other means.• Brush pick-up at any one residence will be limited to approximately 100 square feet of front area along the parkway (approximately six feet high by 17 feet long).• Contractor generated brush will not be collected.
