The Forest Park Public Works Department’s free leaf collection program will wrap up on Wednesday, Dec. 1, giving residents just two more weeks to gather up their fallen leaves and rake them to the curb.
Leaf collection began on Oct. 1.
Residents are asked to rake their leaves into the street gutters where they will be picked a schedule that follows the village’s street sweeping schedule. Those dates can be found here: https://www.forestpark.net/dfp/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/FP-Street-Cleaning-Map-Schedule_0.pdf.
Leaves should be raked to the curb only a day before they are scheduled to be picked up. No grass clippings, bags or tree limbs will be collected. Contractors dumping leaves illegally from other locations will be cited, according to the village.
