Curbside Leaf Pickup

Curbside Leaf Collection Began October 16

Curbside leaf collection began October 16 and is scheduled through November 9 for Palatine residences. Each residence will have two opportunities for curbside leaf pickup. Visit our website to view a collection map for scheduled pickup dates.

All raked leaves must be put into the street and ready for pickup no later than 7:00 a.m. on scheduled days. Raked leaves cannot be placed into the street before 4:00 p.m. the day prior to collection. There is only one pass down each street during scheduled collection days.

Leaf collection is a two-step process with crews collecting leaves with a machine before the sweeper does the final cleanup of leaf debris. Street cleanup is longer than leaf pickup due to the slower pace of the sweeper. 

November 13 is the final leaf pickup opportunity for all Village residences. All zones must have have the final collection of leaves out on the street by 7:00 a.m. Crews will start the final pickup on Monday and continue throughout the week until all leaves have been collected. 

Visit our website for more information regarding curbside leaf pickup.

Halloween Safety Tips for All

Village of Palatine Trick-or-Treat hours for
Tuesday, October 31, are 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Make sure children are accompanied by an adult or responsible teenager when they go trick-or-treating.
  • Instruct children not to eat anything until they are home and treats have been examined by an adult. Do not allow children to eat homemade sweets or foods they receive.
  • Check wrappers for signs of tampering and alert police if you find any suspicious treats.
  • Make sure costumes fit week and allow for good visibility. Remember, using face paint makes it easier for children to see than wearing a mask.
  • Tell children to trick-or-treat in their own neighborhood and stay on well-lit streets. The best time to trick-or-treat is during daylight hours.
  • Remind children not to go inside any home, garage, or yard.If children are going out to be out after dark, make sure they carry a flashlight. Reflective clothing or tape on costumes can also help young people to be more visible.
  • Costumes should be short enough to prevent tripping.
  • Know which friends your children will be with and what route they will be taking.Leave porch lights on so children will know it’s okay to visit a home
  • Teach children to use sidewalks and watch out for traffic.
  • Keep costumed children away from pets. A pet may not recognize the child and could become frightened.
