Severe Weather Update - Damage Cleanup
UPDATE AS OF 3:30 PM FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12
As of 3pm Friday, the Village has completed approximately 75% of our special brush collection with the assistance of several nearby government bodies. Large piles requiring specialized equipment, or streets that have not yet been reached with this special clean-up, will be collected starting as soon as Monday, September 15. As a reminder, only one pass down each eligible street will be made. Materials that are not collected with this special collection should be prepared for regularly scheduled trash and refuse collection; cut and bound with biodegradable twine weighing not more than 50 pounds nor longer than 4 feet. If you have questions on eligibility or if Public Works has completed your street you may contact 847-705-5200.
UPDATE AS OF 4 PM MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
On Thursday, September 11, the Village will begin a Village-wide special brush pick up for storm-related tree limbs and brush. Residents are encouraged to move all storm-related tree limbs and brush to the parkway (between the street and sidewalk) no later than 6:00 am on Thursday. To expedite the removal process, please place the stem of the limbs toward the roadway.
Once crews have been through your neighborhood they will not return again. Any remaining brush will be picked up on the regularly scheduled date for residential refuse, recycling, and yard waste collection. This special brush pick up applies for primarily residential properties participating in weekly collection of curbside garbage and landscape wastes. Yard waste exempt customers - typically multifamily dwellings, commercial, business, and industrial properties - are not charged for this service and therefore will not be included in the special collection. Yard waste exempt customers: please contact your comprehensive yard care service for collection of materials resulting from the September 5 severe weather event.
If you have any questions regarding this special collection, please contact the Village's Public Works Department at 847-705-5200.
