Montgomery, IL– The cooler fall weather has arrived in our area, and the leaves are vibrant. The Village of Montgomery Public Works Department is beginning its Village Leaf Collection Program Monday, October 24, through Friday, November 18.
Residents of Montgomery have three options for disposing of their leaves during the fall season.
Please remember that the Village ordinance prohibits leaf burning, and it is not allowed at any time. Leaves that fall after the final week of pickup or are not appropriately collected and on time for Village disposal are the property owner's responsibility.
The Village of Montgomery encourages residents to take a proactive approach to leaf collection due to the small window of opportunity to collect the leaves from when the leaves fall to when winter weather begins. The Village Streets Team will quickly transition trucks and equipment from leaf collection to snow removal to prepare for snow-clearing procedures. In addition to equipment transition, landfills and state-mandated leaf dumping sites close on or about December 1 annually, which halts municipal leaf programs earlier than preferred, where unseasonable weather extends the time frame for leaf fall.
