The Public Works Department provides free leaf pick up to Oak Brook residents throughout the fall season. In recent years some inefficiencies with the program have been noted. To better serve the community, the Village of Oak Brook’s on staff arborist has conducted an extensive study of the trees within our boundaries. The study included cataloguing the types, age and vicinity of the trees. His research has allowed Public Works to restructure the leaf pick up process, to more efficiently and effectively administer this vital service, this includes changing the Zone number for some of the subdivisions and adjusting the date schedule to allow for deciduous trees that lose their leaves at different times. While mulching your leaves, which, provides much needed nutrients to improve soil health, is the preferred method to eliminate leaves, the Village will be offering the leaf pick up program starting October 16th.
