Village of Palatine

Special Brush Collection Update

On Monday, December 3rd, the Public Works Department began a special brush collection to pick up storm-damaged trees limbs and branches. Due to the large volume of brush, we were unable to complete the collection this week. The majority of the western half of the Village has been completed so far. Crews will continue picking up brush on Monday, December 10th, only in the areas that have not been collected yet.  Residents with additional brush to dispose of may store it until our annual winter curbside brush collection, which will begin on February 4, 2019.  For more information, please call Public Works at (847) 705-5200.
