Do not rake yard waste onto the curb - it must be brought to the yard waste site for disposal.
Leaves will be collected from the gutters in the fall only. The Department of Public Works does not collect leaves and grass in the curb during the spring and summer months.
The Village recommends that grass be mulched or composted on your lawn as an alternative to disposal at the Public Works yard site.
Due to the curbside brush collection service, the Village has a surplus of woodchips.
Residents can pick up woodchips at the residential yard waste site, 2266 Lakefield Road. You need to bring a container and a pitch fork or shovel. The Village will deliver woodchips, however the Woodchip Agreement needs to be completed and sent to the Public Works Department.

A yard access card will be required to obtain access to the yard. The card can be purchased at the Municipal Services Facility, 675 North Green Bay Road. The initial cost of the access card is $35 and the annual renewal costs is $30.
