Fall Curbside Brush Pickup – begins Monday, October 13
The Village of Burr Ridge is pleased to report that the Fall 2014 Resident Brush Pick-up Program will commence in mid-October. This program is intended to provide a service to residents who perform landscaping work on their private property and would like to dispose of the brush. Again this year, the brush will be collected by a grapple-claw mechanism and removed to a remote site for chipping. This process allows the work to be performed more quickly, more quietly and with less chipping debris on the street. The work will be performed under contract with Kramer Tree Specialists. Please ensure that brush conforms to the following requirements, as the Village cannot require the contractor to return to a site if it does not comply:
- Branches removed by contractors are NOT accepted. The program is intended to assist residents who perform their own work.
- Branches may not exceed 8” in diameter.
- Branches must be stacked neatly on the parkway, oriented parallel to the street.
- Branches must not be ties with string, wire, etc. Branches must be free of wire, staples, nails or metal of any kind.
- Root balls, stumps, lumber, debris, rocks, grasses or any non-woody material will not be accepted.
- Branches and twigs shorter than 18” should be placed in a yard waste bag for removal by your waste hauler.
- Branches much not be placed in the parkway more than three weeks before the chipping program begins.
- Branches must be in the parkway by NO LATER THAN 7:00 A.M. on the first day of pickup (October 13). Once the contractor has progressed past your street, they will not be able to return.
The revised process allows the brush removal to be performed in an accelerated manner; therefore, the Village will not be divided into two geographic regions for service. Service will be provided to the entire Village during the week of October 13. Questions should be directed to the Public Works Department at (630) 323-4733.

Letter from Nicor Gas re Modernization of Infrastructure in Illinois
Available for review at the Village Hall is a letter from Karen Gustafson, Manager of Community Relations and Economic Development for Nicor Gas, indicating that, in July 2014, the Illinois Commerce Commission approved Nicor Gas’ Qualifying Infrastructure Plan Tariff that will allow for the recovery of pipeline infrastructure investments across northern Illinois. This will result in the acceleration of the modernization of natural gas infrastructure in Illinois to ensure continued access to abundant and affordable natural gas. Nicor will recover the cost of these infrastructure investments through a cost-controlled adjustment on customer bills, with the maximum increase to the average residential customer bill in 2015 to be approximately $0.75 per month.
Comcast Programming Changes
A letter from Anthony Signorella, Government Affairs Manager for Comcast, highlighting changes to programming that will go into effect October and December, 2014, is available for review at the Village Hall.
