The deadline to sign-up is 12:00 p.m. on Friday, May12th.

SPRING LEAF AND BRUSH PICK UP

The DPW will commence picking up bagged leaves and brush on April 10th through May 26th, 2017.  The leaves need to be in biodegradable paper bags.  Small brush piles will need to be bundled.  Larger limbs (4 ft+) are to be put out with the butts to the curb for easy chipping.  We strongly urge the public not to put any leaves or brush out after the 26th as we will need to get the Village in order for Memorial Weekend.
