Village Green Project Update
Project Information: Construcess. Please note: trees, stumps, dirt, stones, pavers, mulch, and sod are not accepted as yard waste.
The last day for yard waste pickup is Monday, November 25 for residents with Monday pickup; Wednesday, November 27 for residents with Wednesday pickup; and Friday, November 29 (due to the holiday) for residents with Thursday pickup. Yard waste collection will resume in April 2020.
Leaves are considered yard waste and are not an exception to the final yard waste collection date. They must be packaged in brown Kraft bags or yard waste carts. Uncontained leaves will not be collected.
Please do not rake or blow leaves into the street. This can cause the storm grates to be covered and result in flooding.
Calling All Homeowners Associations
If you are a member of a Homeowners Association Board (HOA) or a management company that represents a local HOA, please e-mail the Village your contact information (name, address, phone number, e-mail address, subdivision, and Board position). That way, we can provide information regarding work that is scheduled to occur in your subdivision.
