Free Holiday Tree Collection in January

The Village offers free collection of live Christmas trees during January. Trees should be placed with refuse on residents' normal pick-up day. Trees must be free of tinsel, lights, and ornaments and should not be placed in bags. Any questions may be referred to the Village's service provider, Republic Services, at (708)345-7050.

2018 Resident Only Brush and Branch Removal Program

Do Not Bundle Brush or Branches.
REPUBLIC SERVICES collects April through November: individual branches less than three feet in length and one inch in diameter on your regular trash collection day from your regular collection point. Place in biodegradable paper bags or garbage cans with two “Yard Waste Only” labels attached. “Yard Waste Only” stickers can be picked up for free at the Village Hall. Republic Services collects these branches with other residential yard waste. 

To discard root balls, break them up into small enough pieces to fit into your trash container for Republic Services to collect.

VILLAGE CREWS collect larger brush on the first full week of each month from May through November. Place cut ends of brush and branches towards the street. Individual branches must not exceed six inches in diameter or ten feet in length. Brush may be placed on the parkway for collection beginning the Friday before the scheduled collection week, but no later than 7:00 am on the first Monday of each month. Each street receives a single collection during a scheduled week; placing brush or branches out after the deadline can result in a citation and no pickup. The 2017 dates are:

  • April 2, 2018
  • May 7, 2018 
  • June 4, 2018
  • July 2, 2018
  • August 6, 2018
  • September 4, 2018 (out by 7 am on Tuesday due to Labor Day Holiday)
  • October 1, 2018
  • November 5, 2018
