From the South Milwaukee Street Department …
The South Milwaukee Street Department has begun the collection of fall leaves. We ask that residents place leaves ready for disposal in the curb/gutter for collection until November 15th.
Please do not add any yard waste or plants to leaf piles, this material needs to be disposed of directly at the Self Deposit Station (SDS). Residents who wish to dispose of their leaves directly to SDS, will have the user fee of $2.00 waived (only available until November 15th). The SDS is located at 1106 Blake Ave. Hours of operation for SDS are Tuesday and Friday, 11:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm.
Please do not add leaf piles into the gutter after November 15th, as the City may not be able to collect after that date.
And here is my open letter on leaf collection from 2014. While we have found a closer location to dispose of our leaves, the rest still applies.
Long story story short: Please consider alternatives to putting your leaves in the street.
