Leaf Collection Program

2020 Spring Leaf Collection – April 6th through April 24th

Weather permitting, the Highway Department will be offering a three week leaf collection service for residents within the Township Highway Department jurisdiction. The collection dates will be Monday, April 6th through Friday, April 24th.

Placement of leaf piles follows the same guidelines as the fall leaf collection program.

The collection will not be on a pre-scheduled day. Residents are asked to have their leaf piles out by 6:00 a.m.

Leaves will not be picked up after Friday, April 24th.

This collection is for leaves only. Grass clippings and yard waste will not be picked up.

If you have any questions, please call the Highway Department office at 847-244-1101, Ext. 3.



Our annual leaf collection program begins the week of

Monday, October 19, 2020, and runs through the week beginning

Monday, November 23, 2020. The target collection was as shown on

 Leaf Collection Schedule Map

Your leaves will be collected by Waste Management, which will make six

 trips along each street.  Once the vacuum truck makes its final run in your neighborhood,

it will not return to collect additional leaves.  Waste Management makes every

  effort to collect leaves along each roadway every week.  However, factors

such as poor weather or large volumes may slow down the collection process.

If you have any questions, please call the Warren Township Highway Department at

847-244-1101 ext.3

Leaves should:

  • Be raked to the curb, beginning at the edge of the pavement and be no more than five feet in width.
  •  Not block culverts or storm sewer openings, which could pose a drainage problem in heavy rains or snow
  •  Not include other debris such as cans, paper, rocks, logs, brush or construction material as they could damage equipment and cause injury to the crew.
