Leaf & Yard Waste Collection

Yard waste is collected throughout the year. To be collected, yard waste should be placed by the roadside in a container that can be emptied or in sturdy paper bags.

Acceptable yard waste includes:

  • Green plants
  • Small branches and twigs
  • Thatch
  • We do not accept grass clippings.

Fall Yard Waste

The months of October and November are considered loose leaf collection months, meaning that it is not necessary to bag your leaves. Simply put them at the roadside to be collected.

Leaf piles should be placed between the bottom of the ditch and the edge of the asphalt pavement away from sign posts, mailboxes, and fire hydrants.

Residents that have piles placed on the roadway, including by a contractor, may be subject to a $164 fine.

Disposing of Appliances, White Goods, Computers, & Other Electronics

Do you have old appliances and/or electronics no longer needed? You can dispose of these at a variety of companies within the area. The Village does not accept these items and cannot dispose of them for you.
