Public Works employees will remove from the parkway anything that two men can reasonably lift into a truck. Electronics, tires, yard waste, dirt, stone, construction materials/debris, logs, and liquids such as paint will not be picked up. Items should be placed on residential parkways the evening before the scheduled pickup, or by 7:00 A.M. the day of the pickup, in order to minimize littering problems. There will be no call-backs if the material is not on the parkway by the scheduled time. Trucks may be collecting items ahead of schedule however they will go back on your scheduled day for pickup.
Residents are encouraged to recycle items before putting them out for Clean-up week. Regular recycling may go into residential recycling toters for weekly pick up; plastic bags may be dropped off at grocery stores at all times; and packing styrofoam (not peanuts) may be dropped off at the Public Works building lobby during normal business hours.
The main purpose of this yearly rubbish pickup is to reduce fire hazards in the home; this is an excellent opportunity to clean out your attic, basement, and garage of combustible materials. If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at 847-716-3568 Monday through Friday, 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
