The Village or the Village’s waste hauler (Republic Services / Allied Waste) does not collect debris generated from contractors. The contractor must haul away the debris.
The Village will pick up any damage from a parkway tree. Please call the Department of Public Works, Forestry Division to log a request. Storm Damage from private trees normally requires the protocol for pickup by our waste hauler, Republic Services. See below.
Occasionally, in extreme storm situations, the Village chipper will pick up storm damage from private trees. Visit this website or call the Village of Oak Lawn, Public Works, (708) 499-7756 to inquire if we have set up emergency conditions and storm pick up for private property.
