Branches and Leaves

Village Branch Pick-up

Brush will be picked up twice each month during the season. The season begins in April and, weather permitting, continues through October 26th. The village is divided at Corning Avenue, and brush from Corning Avenue north will be picked up on the first and third Monday of the month (weather permitting).  Brush at homes south of Corning Avenue will be picked up on the second and fourth Monday of each month (weather permitting). Should your scheduled pick up day fall on a holiday, the brush will be collected the following day. There will be no brush collection on a fifth Monday of the month. Brush should be placed in the parkway close to the curb by 6:00 a.m. Monday.

The limbs should be no longer than six feet and stacked parallel to the curb in a stack less than four feet high. Please keep a one foot space between piles. Small twigs, leaves, branches with thorns, and grass clippings are not chipper material and must be placed in A&J/Star Disposal yard waste bags for the regular yard waste collection. Please note that if you hire a service to cut down a tree, you must arrange with that service to haul the tree from your site. The village will not be able to put the tree through the chipper.

Leaf Collection

Each Fall the Department of Streets and Alleys collects leaves from residential parkways. The program guidelines are:

  1. The program will run the week of October 13 through December 01, weather permitting.
  2. The pick-up schedule is subject to weather and emergencies. Weather conditions may cause delays or permanent closure of the program for the season.
  3. FOR SAFETY SAKE: Please- only leaves and mulch- no branches, rocks, litter or other materials. These items can injure personnel and damage equipment. The Village cannot collect leaves mixed with these items.
  4. Leaves should be in the parkway close to the curb by 6:00 a.m. Monday. The entire village will be collected each week. Some properties may not be collected until the end of the week.
  5. To save fuel and operating costs, we cannot conduct return trips. Leaves placed in the parkway after the crew has passed your home will not be picked up until the following week.
  6. Please place leaves in the parkway and away from storm drains.
  7. We must be able to reach the leaves. Leaves must be accessible to the vacuum tube - not behind mailboxes, utility poles, parked cars, etc.
  8. Please do not place leaves in the streets- they will clog storm sewers and increase the potential for street flooding.
