YARD WASTE COLLECTION
Brush chipping and yard waste are collected by public works crews on Monday of each week.
Brush no larger than four inches in diameter and cut in pieces three to 10
feet in length will be disposed of with the village’s brush chipper. This
brush must be piled neatly at the curb with the butt ends pointing in one
direction. Yokes in branches more than one and one-half inches in diameter
must be cut through so the material can be fed into the chipper. All other
material which is too short to chip must be placed at the curb in
a sturdy reusable container such as a garbage can, barrel,
or pail for collection. From approximately October 15 to
approximately December 1, leaves must be placed on piles just behind the
curb, or at the edge of the roadway. Leaves in containers will not be collected.
