Snow parking restrictions begin December 1st through March 31st when 2 or more inches of snow has fallen.  You can call 708-387-SNOW to determine if the parking ban is in effect.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday NO PARKING on the NORTH and WEST sides of the street

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday NO PARKING on the SOUTH and EAST side of the street


The last day for yard waste pick up by Groot is November 30th.  No bags or containers of leaves, grass clippings or  brush will be picked up after that date.  Pick up will resume April 1, 2019.


Leaf Pickup Will begin October 29th

The Village 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 & Hollywood area north of the tracks will see collection crews working on Wednesday and Thursday.  The neighborhoods that are south of the tracks, including Hollywood area south of the tracks 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, during regular hours.

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