Spring reminders from Public Works

Yard waste pickup resumes April 3

Grass clippings, leaves and branches should be placed in brown yard waste bags, 32-gallon cans with red “Yard Waste Only” stickers (free at City Hall) or a 95-gallon cart (available from Homewood Disposal Service).

Clean Up Week

Residents of single-family homes may dispose of multiple bulk items during Clean Up Week, April 24 through April 28.  Simply leave unwanted household items (except electronics and hazardous materials) at the curb on your regular pickup day.

Public Works chipping crews will be following Homewood Disposal’s pickup schedule.  Please leave your branches at the curb by 7 a.m. on your pickup day.  Branches must be less than four inches in diameter and four feet in length and stacked in piles no higher than three feet tall. Larger branches must be cut up into logs (no longer than 24 inches) and stacked in a separate pile at the curb.  Stumps, root balls and roots must be free of attached dirt.

For more information, call Public Works at 708-535-4090 or visit Homewood Disposal’s website.

Arbor Day is April 28

And, don’t forget about Arbor Day on April 28.  The city will plant an Oak tree at Scarlet Oak School.  You can make the most of Arbor Day at home, school and in the community by visiting the Arbor Day Foundation website.

Water conservation measures go into effect on Monday, May 15 until Friday, September 15. Outside water use is allowed from 7 to 11 a.m. and 7 to 11 p.m. on odd or even dates based on your property address.
