Snow covered Trees

Special Brush Pickup

On Monday, November 26, 2018, a severe snow storm caused extensive damage to trees throughout the Village. Beginning on Monday, December 3, 2018, the Village's Public Works Department will conduct a special brush collection to pick up storm-related trees, limbs, and brush from single-family residences. All trees, limbs, and brush must be set out at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on Monday, December 3.
Brush must adhere to the following guidelines to be collected:

  • Firewood, tree stumps and root balls will not be accepted due to the potential damage to the chipper.
  • Cut ends of limbs must face the street, with branches as long as possible.
  • Please locate brush in such a manner as to not block any adjacent sidewalk or street.

Crews will pass down each street just once. If amounts of brush are excessive, the collection may take the entire week or more to finish. The collection may also be delayed due to weather.
The Village will monitor the weather forecast and announce any changes, or if the collection week will be rescheduled on our website, by e-mail in our E-Newsletter, and on our Facebook page. If you have any questions regarding this special collection, please contact the Public Works Department at (847) 705-5200.

Adopt a Hydrant

Adopt a Hydrant Program 

The Palatine Fire Department is launching a new community based safety program and needs your help! In the winter months, heavy snowfall makes finding and accessing fire hydrants very difficult for firefighters, and during an emergency every second counts. With that in mind, the Palatine Fire Department is asking residents, business owners, and local civic groups to consider participating in the new, "Adopt-A-Hydrant" program.

When clearing a fire hydrant, snow should be removed about 3 feet away from the hydrant in all directions with a pathway cleared between the hydrant and the roadway. Please exercise caution when shoveling because of the potential for vehicle traffic nearby. Do not stand in the street when clearing the hydrant and be careful not to slip and fall out into the roadway.
