The 2014 Branch Pickup Program has been revised. There will be no branch pickups in June through September. Pickups will resume with each Monday in October.

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
