Leaf pickup begins Oct. 30 in the village

The village’s 2023 leaf pickup program, designed to keep streets cleaner and safer and to help keep leaves out of sewers and storm drains, will begin the week of Oct. 30.

The program includes free, unlimited, weekly curbside collection of leaves in kraft paper yard waste bags. Plastic bags will not be picked up.

Residents should place bagged leaves in the parkway in front of their home, along the curb, by 6 a.m. on their scheduled pickup date. Bags — and loose leaves — should not be placed in the street.

Bags may not exceed 34 gallons or 60 pounds.

Pickup will run through the week of Dec. 4 at the time of regularly-scheduled weekly yard waste pickup. The last pickup of bagged leaves for homeowners south of the train tracks will be Monday, Dec. 4, and the last pickup of bagged leaves for homeowners north of the train tracks will be Thursday, Dec. 7.

While leaf pickup from Republic Services is complimentary, all other yard waste will require a yard waste sticker.

In some cases, due to volume, collection may run behind (i.e., Monday collection being completed on Tuesday); however, every household will receive one collection in each of the six weeks.

Questions? Call Republic Services at (630) 345-7050 or Hinsdale public services at (630) 789-7042.
