Deerfield Police Conducting Community Survey

Police Department

The Deerfield Police Department is asking all residents to please take a moment to complete the 2018 Community Survey.

The survey is available online here from now through October 31, 2018. 

The Deerfield Police Department has identified the following core values to guide interactions and provide staff members with ideals needed to achieve department goals and meet the overall mission:

  • Professionalism in day-to-day activities of law enforcement and serving the community
  • A community that is safe for its residents and visitors 
  • A balance of service, training, career development and personal time that provides staff with the opportunity for success at the workplace and home
  • Human rights that are the foundation of the country and society

The 2018 survey will help the Police Department determine if they are a reflection of these core values and evaluate the courtesy, efficiency and effectiveness of the department. 

Keep Deerfield Clean -  Don't Leave Refuse at the Curb 

Garbage Carts

Be considerate to neighbors by not leaving large refuse items or garbage and recycling carts at the curb at unsanctioned times.

According the the Village's Municipal Code, on noncollection days, all containers for garbage and recycling shall be stored in the garage or out of plain sight from the street in an effort to make the containers inconspicuous from the public way.

Unless you are signed up for backdoor garbage and recycling collection, all containers for refuse, yard waste and recycling shall be securely closed and placed for collection at the curbside not earlier than sundown of the day preceding the day scheduled for collection from such residence. This also applies to miscellaneous waste, which can also be scheduled for pickup by contacting Waste Management at 800.796.9696.

For more information, visit the Village's website.

Green UP Deerfield - Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Reminders 



It has been reported that higher percentages of non-recyclable materials are being found at processing plants. Some of the most common items to avoid recycling include the following:

  • Plastic bags
  • Pizza boxes
  • Bubble wrap and shrink wrap
  • Electrical cords, string and rope, rubber and plastic hose
  • Propane tanks, batteries and electronic waste
  • Medical equipment, needles and medical devices 
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Wood, metal and furniture
To learn more about what you can and can't recycle or to find out where you can safely recycle many of these items, visit SWALCO's website or contact them at 847.336.9340.

Also, be sure to visit Deerfield's own Sustainability Commission at the Farmers Market on Saturday, August 18 from 9 a.m.-noon for recycling education. 

Landscape Waste

Reduce landscape waste with the Village's yard waste collection program with Waste Management. The program runs through December 15. Yard waste must be placed in a 30-gallon paper bag and placed at the curb with a sticker affixed for collection. A sticker is also required for each bundle not exceeding 4 feet in length, 30 inches in circumference and 50 pounds in weight. 

The cost of landscape waste stickers is $2.82 each; stickers may be purchased at Village Hall, Jewel, Walgreens and Craftwood Lumber. Residents north of Deerfield Road will have yard waste collected on Tuesdays; those south of Deerfield Road will have collection on Wednesdays. 

Rain Barrels

Many gallons of water run right off your roof and into storm sewers - you can reuse it with the help of a rain barrel. If you have a large garden or do a lot of lawn sprinkling, your summer water bill can run into the hundreds of dollars. A one-time investment in a rain barrel allows you to catch and use free rainwater for years.
