Tree Limb Pick-up

Schedule and Guidelines


2016 Schedule:

Weeks of:  April 11th,  May 9th,  September 12th and October 10th

Tree Limb Pick-up is for residents living on township maintained roads in unincorporated Elgin Township only

In order to remove tree limbs in a cost effective, timely and orderly fashion the Elgin Township Highway Department institutes the following guidelines:
  • All limbs must be curbside by 7:00am by these dates.
    • There will be no double coverage; once we go through your area we will not be back until the next scheduled pick-up.
  • Maximum size of limbs to be discarded is 8" in diameter and can be 12' to 15' in length.
  • This is not a tree removal program.  If you are removing entire trees larger than 8" diameter, you will have to hire someone to dispose of them.
  • Please stack all piles no more then 3 feet high and orderly.
  • All small clippings can be placed in a garbage can or brown yard waste bag but NO stones or soil.
  • All bushes and root balls will be accepted if free of soil. 
  • Wood chips are available to homeowners residing on township maintained streets.  We will deliver.

 Snow Removal Guidelines

  • Do not park cars on the road or road right-of-way in the winter months.
  • When depositing snow at the end of your driveway, pile it to the left side of the drive.  This ensures that the plow will not push the snow back into the driveway.
  •  Plowing snow from your driveway and leaving it on the roadway is a violation of Illinois State Statute.
  • Township employees take great pride in their snow removal routes, your cooperation will help them do their job more efficiently.
