November is raking season, and the leaves are falling fast and furious in Oak Park, which means the village's fall leaf removal program is underway.
Residents can rake their leaves into the street, and crews will come by to consolidate the piles and remove them once a week in each quadrant of the village through mid-December.
The graphic at left lays out which days the leaf removal crews will be sweeping through your part of the village, so time your raking with those dates in mind and avoid leaving huge piles in the street for too long.
