Department of Public Works will pick up a brush and leaves on Mondays instead of on Fridays. This is because most people do yard work over the weekend and have brushes and leaves to dispose of. 

Leaves may be in bags or in piles to be vacuumed up. Plastic bags will no longer be given away by the village for leaves. The brush should be stacked neatly at the curb. 

DO INCLUDE: grass clippings, tree and shrub trimmings, leaves, and weeds.
DO NOT INCLUDE: garbage, trash, animal waste, or building material.
