Branch pickups will be conducted on each Monday in May and October, except Memorial Day.

This program is for collecting trimmed limbs and branches only, and not those from entire tree removals, or those left by lawn services. Public Works does not pick up lawn refuse, leaves, grass clippings, tree trunks, etc.

To facilitate timely pick-ups, the length of the limbs and branches should be left as long as possible. Whole limbs chip up much better than small, cut up pieces. Please spread out evenly along the parkway, with cut ends of branches and limbs facing the street. Tangled piles of limbs or branches placed haphazardly will not be picked up.

For further details, please call Public Works or visit the village Web site at

The Village of Winthrop Harbor is moving forward with the creation of a comprehensive plan, which will help guide development and decision making in the Village for years to come. Now it's time to build upon the success of the initial public meeting in December, when participants helped define community values and identified key issues and opportunities in Winthrop Harbor.
Please join us for a Visioning Workshop on May 7th, the next step in creating the new comprehensive plan. At this workshop, you will help determine how Winthrop Harbor will look in 2030. This is a great opportunity to share and discuss the future of Winthrop Harbor with your family, neighbors, and friends.
RSVP to John Carlisle at or 312-386-8839. To learn more about the project, visit

The Village of Winthrop Harbor will once again host a Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 25, 2015 in honor of the fallen men and women of our United States military. This annual event is organized together with the Winthrop Harbor Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post.

We invite you to participate in this year’s parade with your float, band, marching group or other entry. The parade line-up will be at 10:00 a.m. at the Pfeiffer Transmission parking lot on the corner of Sheridan Road and State Line Road in Winthrop Harbor. The parade will begin at 11:00 a.m., proceeding south on Sheridan Road to 9th Street, then west on 9th Street to Village Park. At the park there will be a Memorial service presented by the Winthrop Harbor VFW at 12:00 Noon.

The Village invites any groups that would like to participate in the parade, even if it is just to walk with us. The general theme of all parade entries should be to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom.

On-line registration is quick and easy at the village web site, (Click to the "Coming Events" page) You may also register by mail, FAX or in-person using the form below. There is no-charge to participate in the parade.

Weather permitting, the AIR-ONE Emergency Response Coalition (founded in Winthrop Harbor) will honor our nation's fallen heroes with a tribute fly-over of the Memorial Day parade. AIR-ONE will do a single-pass fly-over in a Viet Nam era UH1 "Huey" helicopter, which will then land at Village Park and remain on display after the VFW memorial service. The public is invited for an up-close look at the AIR-ONE Huey!

We look forward to this day being a successful remembrance of all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our Country. Whether you participate in the parade or join your friends and neighbors street-side to watch, we look forward to seeing you on Monday, May 25th.
