Leaves Are Falling!

2015 Tri-Cities Leaf Collection Schedule   


Be sure to check the 2015 Leaf Collection Maps and Schedules for boundaries, schedules and availability.


St. Charles

Leaves must be on the parkway by 6:30 a.m. on your area’s designated day even though it may take several days to pick up the piles in your specific area.

This program is funded by a portion of the fee collected on the utility bills of eligible homeowners. Check your utility bill or call Utility Billing at 630-377-4426 with questions about your eligibility for this program.




 Residents must place their leaves on the parkway no later than 7:00 A.M. of the day of your scheduled

pickup period. If leaves are placed on the parkway after the collection crews have gone by, they will not

return until the next scheduled pickup date.

Each year, the order in which the zones are collected is alternated to provide equal service to all residents. Collection this year will require approximately 2-3 work days to complete each zone




 Residents are asked to rake leaves to the space in the parkway no farther than 6’ behind curb and not in street by 6 a.m. on the Monday of your scheduled week.

Leaves will be collected in designated areas, rain or shine.  Crews will not return to an area once they have made one pass during the scheduled weeks.

When to see Fall Colors in Illinois!

by The Rullo Team

Every year, we all wonder, when will the fall colors be at their best?? According to Ron Wolford, a University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator, “predicting peak fall color is very difficult. Normally colors peak in northern Illinois around mid-October, but a few years ago we didn’t get peak color until late October. So peak color varies from year to year. The best fall color occurs when we have bright, sunny days and cool nights with sufficient rainfall.”

Check out these websites to help in the search for the best fall color:
