Fall Loose Leaf Pickup Begins Oct. 15

Post Date:10/01/2018 3:59 PM
Leaf-Pickup-Sweeper-538The Village's fall loose-leaf (not bagged) collection program begins on Monday, October 15th and runs through Friday, November 30th. This program provides residents with a convenient method to dispose of leaves at no cost. Residents may set out loose leaves to be picked up by Mount Prospect Public Works crews at the curb on scheduled collection days from Monday, October 15 through Friday, November 30, 2018.

Residents should rake leaves onto the pavement one foot from the curb line one day prior to the scheduled collection day. 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. 

The loose-leaf collection program is for leaves only; leaf piles will not be collected if the pile contains grass clippings or other yard material. Yard material other than leaves must be disposed of according to the Village’s yard waste collection guidelines. Information, including yard waste guidelines and a collection schedule, can be found at the Village’s website.

Additionally, residents should know that burning leaves in Mount Prospect is a violation of Village code and is not allowed under any circumstances.
