Scheduled Road improvements on Main Street begin today

Beginning Monday, November 4th, property owners may rake leaves inter the gutter so that they can be collected by the Village's leaf vacuum.  Please refer to the four quadrants shown on the map to locate your area using the bold printed streets on the map as the border for the quadrants and follow the 2019 Leaf Collection Schedule or your collection days.   The Village asks residents to refrain from raking grass, refuse, branches and other litter into the gutter; these items should be properly bundled and placed tat the curb on the day of regular sanitation collection days. You may also place collected leaves in plastic bags and place on curb on your regular garbage day (not to exceed 10 bags at a time).

If residents reside on a Nassau County owned road, we advise you to maintain your current method of disposing leaves - this new initiative applies only to only Village of Hempstead residents.  If you have questions, please call 516-478-6270.
