Leaf Pickup Will begin October 29th

The Village of Brookfield’s fall leaf collection program will kick-off on Monday October 29, 2018 and continue through the end of November.  To manage the collection program in an efficient manner and to take advantage of the Village’s Street Parking regulations, the Village has been divided into sections that collection crews will systematically work through during the fall season.

Collections will begin in the neighborhoods north of Washington Avenue on Monday the 29th and continue through Tuesday, the areas between Washington Avenue and the train tracks will see collection crews working on Wednesday and Thursday.  The neighborhoods that are south of the tracks and east of Salt Creek will be collected on a similar schedule during the following week.  During the third and fourth weeks of November the process will be repeated, until each street in the Village has been cleared of leaves two times.

Extra staff will be assigned to the collection program on Wednesday November 21st, due to the fact no collections will be completed on Thanksgiving Day.

Please refrain from placing sticks, tree branches, or other debris in the leaf piles as these items slow the collection process down.

Weather conditions may affect this schedule, which if necessary can be extended for up to one week.

Residents requesting additional information may call the Public Works Department at 708-485-2540 between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm
