When is the Village's Leaf Removal Program?
The village removes leaves from residential streets beginning in late October and ending the first week of December. Leaf removal begins as early as 7:30 AM and may continue into the evening.

In early October, an informational postcard is mailed to residents explaining the leaf removal program and schedule. Residents may also receive information on the program by subscribing to announcements from the Department of Municipal Services at Notify Me.

Only leaves should be raked into the gutter. Other landscaping materials such as plants, grass, branches or pumpkins should not be raked into the street. Residents parking on residential streets should exercise caution during this time as hot automobiles can easily ignite large piles of leaves.

During the removal process, residents can call the Leaf Hotline, 708-246-1800, ext. 305, for daily schedule updates.
