The village of Oak Park’s fall leaf collection began on Oct. 17 and will run through Dec. 1 with seven pickups planned in each of four geographic sections of the village. Leaves should be raked into the street at least 18 inches from the curb the day before the scheduled pickup dates in each section. Leaves raked into the street are pushed into piles during the night, and then collected the following day. Residents who miss a scheduled pickup date should keep their leaves on the parkway until the night before the next scheduled pickup. More information, including a map of the pick-up schedule, is posted on the village website.
