Due to the blizzard conditions of the recent storm event and the damage to trees caused by heavy snow and high winds, the village will be offering a special brush pickup beginning Monday, Dec. 10. Residents must neatly place their brush at the curb by 7 a.m. Monday, Dec. 10 as crews will not return to the areas they service. This special brush pickup is open to single-family residences only; contractor-generated brush will not be collected. Residents are asked to follow the brush preparation guidelines listed below to ensure their material is collected. The next opportunity for brush removal will not be until the spring of 2019.
Alternatively, residents are encouraged to use the yard waste disposal program provided by Republic Services. Yard waste collection runs through the second full week in December. Smaller brush and yard waste can be placed into biodegradable yard waste paper bags not to exceed 30 gallons in capacity or 50 pounds in weight. Residents are asked to follow the brush preparation guidelines listed on the village's website to ensure their material is collected as part of this program. Those with questions on any of this information can dial 311 in the village or call (847) 895-4500 outside of Schaumburg for assistance.
