Fall Leaf Collection
The Village offers a free six-week fall leaf collection program during which residents may dispose of an unlimited number of leaves in biodegradable bags (no cans) without stickers.

Christmas Tree Collection
A Christmas tree pick up is offered for a two-week period in January. Christmas trees free of tinsel and decorations will be collected curbside at no charge.

Specific dates for both collections are listed on the Event Calendar as the collection nears. Sign up for our weekly e-newsletter to be notified about Village information, including fall leaf and Christmas Tree collections.
