Leaf and Brush Pickup

For Leaf Pick Up, residents need to subscribe for that service with Republic Services by calling (618) 656-6883. During the months of October, November and December, the Village will pay for this service, but residents must call Republic Services and subscribe for the three-month service. Residents requiring leaf pick-up between April and September can contract with Republic Services for $5.58 per month at their own cost.

Republic will pick up leaves weekly on Wednesdays beginning in October. Leaves must be in either paper landscape waste bags or in a 32-gallon trash can marked with a large red X on it. Bags and cans must be left as close to the edge of the road as possible. There is a limit of 8 bags per week and bags or cans must not exceed 50 pounds in weight. In the event a resident has more than 8 bags of leaves, Republic Services will pick up a maximum of 28 bags, but must be contacted one week prior to pick-up so they can alter their schedule to accommodate the large pick-up.

As in the past, residents have the option of contracting with Republic for grass and brush pick-up at their own cost. For brush pick up, brush and limbs must be no thicker than 4 inches in diameter, cut to lengths no longer than 4 feet, and tied into approximately 2-foot bundles.

Leaves are not to be raked into drainage ditches or storm gutters. We recognize that this has been the allowed practice for many decades but that practice must stop in order to prevent clogging of the drainage systems. This is one piece of the puzzle to stop water from backing into yards and homes.
