Owners responsible for private property storm debris disposal

When severe weather creates debris from trees on private property, owners are reminded not to bring limbs or brush to the curb, but make other arrangements for its disposal. Public Works crews only pick up debris from parkway trees.

However, brush from private property will be treated as yard waste if it is tied into bundles, each tagged with a green yard waste sticker and placed in the regular refuse pick-up area. Each bundle should be no larger than two feet in diameter, four feet in length and not exceed 50 pounds.

Yard waste stickers are $2.36 each and are available at most Village grocery and hardware stores, as well as in the cashier’s office at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. The Village’s contract refuse hauler also will come to a home and estimate the cost for removing larger, unbundled quantities of yard waste — call 888.656.5350.
