Free Bagged Leaf Pick-Up Taking Place June 1 for Residents South of 95th Street
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Due to Monday afternoon’s significant storm in the south end of Naperville, a free bagged leaf pick-up will take place this Saturday, June 1 for Naperville residents who live south of 95th Street.
To take part in this special one-day collection, please do the following:
- Bag leaves in yard waste bags. NO sticker will be required for this special free collection.
- Place your yard waste bags at the curb by 6 a.m. on Saturday, June 1. Groot, the City’s garbage/recycling provider, will collect these bags on that day.
Please do NOT rake leaves into the street. Leaves left in the street create a flooding hazard when they clog storm drains during heavy rain events. With heavy thunderstorms and an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain forecast for the overnight hours tonight into Wednesday, flash flooding is a concern. Residents who live south of 95th Street and have raked leaves onto the curb are asked to please bag these leaves and utilize this Saturday’s free bagged collection program to dispose of them.
City and contractor crews will begin street sweeping in the south end of Naperville this week as weather permits. Please do not put large materials or piles of leaves in the street as this will hinder street sweeping progress.
How to Dispose of Brush
If residents have large limbs, twigs or other brush debris from Monday’s storm, they can discard these items through the annual curbside bulk brush collection program, which is currently underway and is continuing as scheduled in the southern portion of the City over the next few weeks. A full collection schedule and program information is available at www.naperville.il.us/brushcollection. Please note:
- If you have Wednesday garbage collection, your bulk brush collection week is May 28-31.
- If you have Thursday garbage collection, your bulk brush collection week is June 3-7.
- If you have Friday garbage collection, your bulk brush collection week is June 10-14.
Yesterday’s storms did NOT impact the bulk brush collection program; collection is progressing as scheduled.
Please Check Your Storm Drains
In advance of tonight’s rains, please take some time today or this evening to ensure the storm drains are clear in your neighborhood. If you see a drain clogged beyond repair, please contact the City’s Public Works Department at (630) 420-6095 or City Dispatch at (630) 420-6187. Thank you to the many residents who worked together with their neighbors to clear drains following yesterday’s storms.
As a reminder, garbage and recycling collection is delayed by one day this week due to the Memorial Day holiday. Curbside services will be collected one day later for the remainder of the week.
