Fall Leafing Schedule
The Fall leaf pickup will begin the week of October 12th and run through November 6th.  Attached is the schedule.  Public Works will pickup leaves curbside on your regularly scheduled recycling day.  We suggest that you rake leaves into piles between the sidewalk and the curb and move them into the street (2 feet from the curb) the day before your scheduled collection day.  DPW will pick up leaves and grass clippings ONLY (NO plant materials, vines, branches, logs, gravel, trash bags, etc.).

As always, if leaves are still falling after November 6th the Public Works Department will continue to pickup until leaves are done falling or the first snowfall occurs.

Helpful Tips:
  • Do not pile leaves over or within 10 feet of a storm sewer catch basin.
  • Water down your leaves after raking to prevent them from blowing back into your yard.
  • Do not park your vehicle over a leaf pile - heat from the exhaust system can cause a fire.
  • For easier leaf disposal cut them up with your mower.
  • You may also bag up your leaves and bring them to the Yard for disposal.

North Anchor Site Redevelopment and other Development in the Southridge Mall Area
Earlier this year we learned that Sears was closing hundreds of stores across the nation.  We later learned that the Sears store at Southridge was closing.  Since hearing this news the Village Board has met to discuss plans to redevelop the north anchor site.  Over the past couple of months the Village has met with representatives from the owners of the north anchor site, Seritage Growth Properties. We have also met with representatives from the City of Greenfield since part of the site is located in Greenfield. Discussions with Seritage have gone very well.  Seritage, Greenfield and the Village are working on a redevelopment plan for the north anchor site.  (Village of Greendale Press Release)
