Two of the three leaf vacuum machines suffered mechanical failures and may not be operable for the rest of the leaf pickup season. As a result, collection is behind on the leaf vacuum schedule. DPW is doing their best to pick up leaves with the one leaf vacuum and other equipment available to them. Unfortunately, all communities are using their own leaf pickup equipment at this time, which restricts the Village's ability to borrow equipment in this time of need.
Leaf collection will be extended by one week - through Friday, December 13. DPW will collect yard waste bags through the end of December.
Thank you to all the residents for your patience as the Village problem solves this issue. In the meantime, residents can help DPW out by bagging their leaves. DPW uses a different process to collect bagged leaves and will be able to pick up bagged leaves the same day when your refuse and garbage is collected. Please continue to direct any questions to DPW at 414.847.2650.
