Hello from the Public Works Department,

A Homewood Disposal is now picking up brown yard waste bags and tree branches (cut and tied in 4ft sections) please do not put grass clippings and yard waste in plastic bags as they will not be picked up. Also the Street Sweeper will be following the garbage routes so please remove your cans from the street. We will also be out trimming trees weather permitting and repairing park ways from our water main breaks from the winter season. Also when calling in a street light out please give the best address possible so we make sure we get the correct light repaired. Please remember that the metal poles belong to the Village of Dolton and the wood poles belong to ComEd, if you have a ComEd light out in front of your home you may call ComEd yourself or feel free to call Public Works and we can call for you. Like always the Public Works hours are from 7am to 3:30pm, 708-201-3280-3281
