During The month of October and November, the Village DPW will vacuum and collect leaves. ONLY LEAVES WILL BE VACUUMED. Collection will begin on the first Monday in October. On each Monday in October and November, the DPW will begin a collection of all the leaves raked during the previous weekend. At the discretion of the DPW Supervisor, leaf collection may be discontinued in November due to poor weather conditions which prohibit the use of the leaf vacuum. Should this occur residents will be duly informed of the discontinuation.
Residents located on M-46 should rake leaves to either an alley behind their residence or an adjacent street. If residents located on M-46 do not have an adjacent street or alley to rake to, the Village will provide up to ten (10) paper yard waste bags. Village provided bags will be made available at the Village offices upon request of the affected resident. These bags will be collected by the DPW during the normal collection of leaves.
Residents who do not want to rake their leaves to the side of the road may place their leaves in paper yard waste bags, which will be collected by the Village during normal collection of leaves.
Yard Waste Collection
During the months of April through November, residents are required to bag their yard waste in paper yard waste bags and place the bags curbside. These bags will be collected each Tuesday on a weekly basis. No yard waste will be collected by the Village during December, January, February, or March.
All yard waste must be placed in commonly available paper yard waste bags. Yard waste is not included in the 3-bag limit for trash pickup. Yard waste not placed in commonly available paper yard waste bags will not be collected. Paper yard waste bags are available for purchase from the Village or any other stores which carries them.
Chipping will occur on the first Tuesday of each month, starting in April and ending in November. (No chipping will occur during December, January, February, or March.) The Village will only chip branches that are eight inches (8”) or less in diameter. Yard waste which is inappropriate for chipping (e.g. rose bush stems, branches larger than 8” in diameter, non-organic waste, etc.), will be left at the roadside for the resident to dispose of properly.
All branches to be chipped must be placed curbside with the “butts” of the branches facing the road. Brush piles must be one branch deep (maximum ten (10) feet) and not exceed four (4) feet in height and twenty-five (25) feet in length. Small branches (i.e. less than a ¼ inch in diameter, grapevines, etc.) must be bundles with twine. Materials which do not meet these requirements will be left at the roadside for the resident to dispose of properly.
