MDC Environmental Services, Inc. is responsible for the annual Leaf Pick-Up Program. The Leaf Pick-Up Program runs from the first Monday in October to the second Friday in December. MDC crews will collect bagged leaves placed at the curbside in front of all residents' homes along public streets. The bags must be placed on the parkway before 7:00 a.m. on the normal trash collection day. The Leaf Pick-Up Program is being offered at no additional fee.
Leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper bags in order to be collected. Paper leaf bags are available at local grocery and hardware stores. Neither the City nor MDC provides leaf bags. There is a 50 pound maximum per bag. Be aware that wet leaves will add to the weight of the bag. Leaves placed in other containers such as plastic bags, garbage cans or boxes, or in bags too large for one person to handle, cannot be accepted.Questions regarding the Leaf Pick-Up Program can be directed to MDC at (815) 568-7274 or the Crystal Lake Streets Division at (815) 356-3700 ext. 4019.
If you notice a street light that has burnt out or is not functioning, please call the Engineering Division at (815) 356-3615 with the following information:
Most of the streetlights in the City are the responsibility of ComEd to maintain, particularly those in residential areas. For streetlights under ComEd’s maintenance, the City will contact ComEd to setup service for the street light and will track the status of the repairs. If the Street light is the City’s responsibility to maintain, the City will make the necessary repairs.
