Leaf Collection

Did you know that leaves serve as free mulch and fertilizer for your lawn and landscape beds?  Skokie's Environmental Sustainability Plan calls to "Leaf them Alone".  Rake a few inches of leaves into your landscape beds, mulch leaves into your lawn using a mulching lawnmower, or add leaves to your backyard compost bin.

For the rest of your leaves:  There is no need to call in a request for leaf collection.  Simply rake your leaves to the street near the curb and crews collect the leaves every 5 to 7 days from mid-October to early December.  For more information click here.
