Fall branch pickup program
Hoffman Estates' free curbside tree branch pickup fall program will begin the week of Monday, Sept. 23. This program is for residents covered by the Village refuse collection contract. Routes and dates have been established for various sections of the community. See the dates for your area here!
Only one collection pass will be made for each street. Please do not ask for exceptions. Please do not park in front of branches placed for collection.
If branches are too large, are mixed with unacceptable materials or have not been prepared properly, they will not be picked up.
Public Works crews WILL accept:
- Tree branches no larger than 8 inches in diameter or 10 feet in length
- Shrub trimmings and similar brush
- Branches from willow trees if separated from other materials
Public Works crews WILL NOT accept:
- Tree trunks, stumps or root balls
- Railroad ties or landscape timbers
- Grass clippings, leaves, sod, plants or yard waste
On the first date of pickup listed for your area, neatly stack branches at curbside by 7 a.m. Face the cut ends toward the street. Do not tie branches in bundles or place in any container. Do not allow branches to protrude into the street or block sidewalks. Do not stack branches around street signs, street lights, mailboxes or directly in front of parkway trees. Do not park in front of branches placed for collection.
While supplies last, free woodchips will be available to residents at the Village's vehicle maintenance facility, 2405 Pembroke Ave., during daylight hours after 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during daylight hours on weekends. Please bring your own containers.
If you have any questions or want to find out about free large truckload deliveries of wood chips, please contact the Public Works Department at 847-490-6800.
