Street sweeping begins Monday, Oct. 17

Street sweeping in Park Forest begins Monday, Oct. 17, and lasts approximately 10 days.

The street sweeper normally begins in the north part of Park Forest and continues south. The number of streets cleaned each day depends on the amount of leaves and/or debris needing removal as well as contractor work force that day and weather conditions.

Residents are asked to remove their cars from the streets during the week of street sweeping in order for the most effective cleaning of the streets to take place.

Residents are also reminded that raking or blowing leaves, grass, or debris into the street is strictly prohibited. Leaves clog Village storm sewers resulting in flooded streets. Fines will be issued for any individual witnessed raking or blowing leaves, grass, or debris into the street.
