Special Leaf Collection - ZONE C

The Village of Oswego is committed to three leaf vacuum collections in each zone during the fall season. Due to the early snow this past fall, we needed to convert equipment over for snow removal operations; therefore we were not able to complete the leaf vacuum collection in

Zone C.  As time allowed, we were able to use our end loader to remove leaves from the street curb lines for drainage. In order to complete the collection process in Zone C with our leaf vacuums, we will begin the vacuum collection process in Zone C only, on Monday, April 10, 2017.

Zone C - East of the Fox River and northwest of US 34

(Boulder Hill, Cedar Glen, Downtown (north of Rt. 34), Fairway Crossing, Farmington Lakes, Heritage, Kingsbrook Crossing, Mill Race Creek, Rt. 25, Chicago Road (Walgreens side), Hawthorne Drive, Stone Gate, Victoria Meadows, Windcrest, Winding Waters)

Leaves need to be placed in the parkway grass by 7:00 a.m. on April 10th.  Crews will make one pass down each side of the street. Leaves not placed out by 7:00 a.m. on April 10th may be placed in yard waste bags for the FREE Groot refuse pick up, the week of April 24th – 28th, on your regular scheduled garbage day.
