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.
