Montgomery, IL – Due to the unseasonably warm fall, the Village of Montgomery Public Works Department has coordinated an extension of the Village Leaf Collection Program through the last week of November.
Residents of Montgomery have three options for disposing of their leaves before the winter season.
Please remember, leaf burning is prohibited by Village ordinance and not allowed at any time. Leaves that fall after the final week of pickup or are not appropriately collected and on time for Village disposal are the property owner's responsibility. The window of opportunity to collect the leaves from when the leaves fall to when winter weather begins is small. The Village Streets Team will quickly transition trucks and equipment from leave collection to snow removal to be prepared for snow clearing procedures. In addition to equipment transition, landfills and state-mandated leaf dumping sites close on or about December 1 annually, which halts municipal leaf programs earlier than preferred in years such as this, where unseasonable weather extends the time frame for leaf fall.
