It's that time of year again. Fall leaf collection is approaching, and Shorewood will begin making the rounds with vacuum machines Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.

The village says residents should rake leaves onto the parkway, and not into the street as leaf nutrients leached out by rain ends up flowing into storm sewers and subsequently into lakes and rivers.

Mulch leaves by mowing them into their lawns to reduce the collection effort as much as possible, the village advises. Chopped up leaves feed lawns and reduce need for chemical fertilizers.

Collection dates may be adjusted depending on the leaf fall each particular year. For more info, please view the annual handout here.
