The village of Silver Lake’s Leaf and Limb Program will begin Oct. 24 and will run through Nov. 30.
Limbs and leaves must be in separate piles. Do not put limbs and leaves in the street or in bags.
Limbs must be no more than 4 inches in diameter and no longer than 10 feet. Lumber, stumps, and anything with a root system will not be picked up because they damage the chipper blades. Grasses, weeds, firewood, and any material that cannot be put in the chipper safely will not be picked up, according to a news release from the service department.
Do not place debris in the street. Leaves clog the storm drain and make it dangerous for traffic, according to the news release. Homeowners may be cited if debris is placed in the streets. In addition, do not pile leaves in areas where there are stones, they will not be picked up as this causes damage to the leaf picker.
