Loose Leaf Collection Starts

Program Extended to December 1

Post Date:10/07/2017

The program allows residents to set out loose leaves at the curb once a week on scheduled collection days between Monday, October 9 and Friday, December 1 where they will  be collected  by Public Works. There will be no loose leaf collection the week of Thanksgiving (November 20-24).

The loose-leaf collection program is for LEAVES ONLY.  Organics/yard material other than leaves must by disposed of according to the Village's organics/yard waste collection guidelines.  Leaf piles will not be collected if the pile contains grass clippings or other organics/yard material.  In addition, please follow these guidelines:

  • Please rake leaves onto the pavement one foot from the curb line one day prior to the scheduled collection day.
  • Please do not rake leaves into the street after the truck has passed your home.  The machines travel each street weekly during the collection period, but only once on each side.
  • Burning leaves in Mount Prospect violates ordinance 24.115.

Please contact the Public Works Department at email or 847.870.5640.
