UPDATE - 12/06/19

Lakeshore Recycling Systems will provide free bagged leaf collection in the month of December, through December 24 for any remaining leaves on your regular refuse collection day.
This program is funded by a portion of the fee collected on the utility bills of eligible homeowners. Check your utility bill or call Utility Billing at 630-377-4426 with questions about your eligibility for this program.
