Can I pile my leaves in the street after I clear them from my yard?

Piling leaves in the street would directly violate Village ordinances. Street sweepers are not designed to handle a large volume of leaves, and doing so can damage the sweeper. Additionally, piling leaves in the street would also limit the performance of our sewers, as they would clog the sewer intakes and inhibit proper drainage. To properly dispose your leaves, please follow the procedures for yard waste disposal, i.e. using garbage cans labelled "yard waste" or biodegradable paper bags on garbage pickup day.
