Leaf and Brush Pickup

The last day that the Village will pick up leaves and brush is June 30. In the event of a storm or high winds that down limbs throughout town, the Public Works Director may, at his discretion, provide brush removal services at no cost to residents for a short period of time.

For Fall Leaf Pick Up, residents need to subscribe for that service with Republic Services no later than September 1 at (618) 656-6883. The Village will pay this bill. Republic will then pick up leaves weekly 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.

Republic will bill the Village for this service not the customer. There is no cost to residents for this service during the months of October, November, and December, but you must subscribe for this service in order to receive it. Call (618) 656-6883

As in the past, residents have the option of contracting with Republic for grass and brush pick up during other months 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.
