Leaf Collection

Benefits of Mulching

  • Saves on Village resources
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Increases the health of your lawn
  • Reduces the need to purchase fertilizer for your lawn

Curbside Leaf Collection

Curbside leaf collection begins on or about October 15 and will continue until approximately December 1, as weather permits. If you have leaves at your curb and snow is predicted; we strongly suggest you pick the leaves up as they will be plowed back into the yard. 

Please keep in mind that Village crews cannot be on every street every day. Crews typically begin their final sweep through the Village the Monday after Thanksgiving. Once you have had collection that week, we are done. Again, please keep in mind that leaf collection is weather dependent and collection is not guaranteed. 

There is no curbside leaf collection in the spring of the year.


Grass, leaves, and garden waste are composted at the Residential Yard Waste Site, 2266 Lakefield Road. The site is fully automated and access is available 7 days per week during daylight hours. An access card is needed, the card can be obtained at the Public Works office - 675 North Green Bay Road.
