Frequently Asked Questions

Department of Public Works will pick up brush and leaves on Mondays instead of on Fridays. This is because most people do yard work over the weekend and have brush and leaves to dispose of. 

Leaves may be in bags or in piles to be vacuumed up. Plastic bags will no longer be given away by the village for leaves. Brush should be stacked neatly at the curb. 

DO INCLUDE: grass clippings, tree and shrub trimmings, leaves and weeds.
DO NOT INCLUDE: garbage, trash, animal waste or building material.

The Village has a policy for trash and refuse. By law, property owners are responsible for pickup at rental properties.

Your trash will be picked up according to the schedule of your individually contracted hauler. Your trash must be placed at the curb in standard sized garbage cans no larger than 33 gallons. Trash should be set out no sooner than 6:00 p.m. on the day before your pickup and empty containers must be removed from the curb before 11:00 p.m. on the day of pickup.
