Do not rake yard waste onto the curb - it must be bagged and brought to the compost pile 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.
