Leaf Collection Begins October 16

The Village’s Leaf Collection Program will begin on October 16 and run through December 8, weather permitting. Residents who live on residential side streets are asked to rake leaves to the curb. Residents who live on arterial streets (Lake Ave, Wilmette Ave, Sheridan Rd, Green Bay Rd, Ridge Rd, Skokie Blvd and Hibbard Rd) should place leaves on the parkway behind the curb due to heavy traffic.

In order to be collected, leaves must be in a loose condition, not in bags or containers. Please avoid raking leaves on the street until two days prior to your scheduled collection day to prevent the clogging of storm drains.

Street parking will be prohibited on scheduled leaf collection days. Please adhere to posted parking restrictions to ensure that leaves can be collected as scheduled. Leaf piles blocked by vehicles will be skipped, and the vehicle will be ticketed.
