Curbside Brush Pickup Scheduled for February 5, 2018

Curbside brush collection is scheduled for the first full week of February, beginning Monday, February 5 at 7:00 a.m. This collection will be for unbundled brush and does not include bagged leaves or brush at this time. 

Residents must have all brush unbundled and no larger than 8 inches in diameter to accommodate chipper. Additionally, all brush must have cut end  facing toward the street.

Residents may also dispose of their Christmas trees, however please make sure the tree is clean of lights and all ornaments. Only cleaned trees will be accepted

Firewood, tree stumps and root balls will not be accepted because of the potential damage it may cause to the chipper.

Crews will pass down each street once. Residents are asked to be patient. If the amount of brush is excessive or there is inclement weather, it may take the entire week to finish brush collection.

Holiday Enforcement Mobilization Numbers

Holiday Enforcement Mobilization Numbers

The Palatine Police Department conducted both day and night enforcement from December 18 through January 2 reminding motorists to buckle up and not drive impaired during the 'Click it or Ticket' and 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' mobilization. 

The Palatine Police Department joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce highway fatalities by cracking down on unbuckled motorists and impaired drivers.

Throughout the holiday season, uniformed Palatine Police officers hit the streets on dedicated traffic enforcement saturation patrols.  These saturation patrols emphasized the hours of midnight to 3:00 a.m., which have proven to be the deadliest on Illinois roadways.  Additionally, a roadside safety check was set up in an effort to make sure motorists were driving responsibly.

The following is a result summary of the Holiday mobilization in the Village of Palatine:

  • 2 DUI arrests
  • 65 seat belt citations
  • 7 speeding citations
  • 1 child restraint citation
  • 27 illegal use of cell phone while driving citations
  • 10 other traffic related citations
  • 4 suspended/revoked driver’s license arrests
  • 2 drug arrest
  • 2 felony/misdemeanor arrests

This law enforcement mobilization was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and is part of the nationwide “Click it or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaigns.  For more information, visit Should you witness erratic or impaired driving, please call 9-1-1.  Let’s all do our part to make Illinois roadways as safe as they can be.
