CITY OF ELGIN: Special On-Street Leaf Collection Program Begins April 22 In Designated Aress
City of Elgin issued the following announcement on April 21.
The 2018 on-street leaf collection program was suspended early due to weather, so Elgin's public works division will provide a special spring on-street leaf collection program over the next two weeks in April (the weeks of April 22 and 29). On-street leaf collection is for Elgin residents living within the city’s four designated areas, as shown on map.
Residents within these four areas should rake their leaves along the curb by 6 a.m. on their scheduled leaf collection day. Leaves placed in the street after the crews have passed will not be collected until the next scheduled date.
Leaves should be raked to the street, along the curb or edge of the pavement. Avoid parking on the street on the scheduled leaf-collection days, as leaf piles blocked by cars will not be collected. Please do not mix trash, branches or other yard waste with leaf piles.
All Elgin residents may place leaves in yard waste bags for free collection by Waste Management on their regular garbage collection days (purple refuse stickers are not required during the month of April). Residents always have the option to mulch their leaves as mulching provides additional nutrients to the soil which promotes turf growth.
Please keep in mind that weather may affect the published schedule.
