Non-Emergency Offices Closed for Thanksgiving - Thursday, November 28 & Friday, November 29


In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, non-emergency Village offices will be closed on Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29.

Waste Management garbage, recycling and yard waste collection will proceed as usual without delay.

We'd also like to remind everyone to stay safe this Thanksgiving with a few tips:

  • Never allow yourself, a friend or a family member to drive drunk or "buzzed."
  • Always wear a seat belt and be extra cautious driving at night.
  • Avoid the use of turkey fryers.
  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Keep children away from knives, open flames and hot food and liquids.
The Village of Deerfield wishes you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Final Dates of Fall Leaf Collection Program

Leaf Collection

Due to recent snow and freezing temperatures, the fall leaf collection program has been extended through Wednesday, November 27.

There is no pickup schedule for the final three days of collection next week, and Public Works will only make one pass per house. To ensure your leaves are collected, all piles must be at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on Monday, regardless of your location in Deerfield. 

If you have leaves remaining after the end of the program, you may place them in yard waste bags for collection by Waste Management on your garbage pickup day. Yard waste must be affixed with a sticker - get more information here.
