Branch Pick Up Resumes
PLEASE READ TO UNDERSTAND THIS SERVICE
The Village of Cullom will resume seasonal branch pick up services to residents. Branch pick up will begin Friday, April 14, 2023 and end on October 13, 2023. Pick up will continue to be on Fridays (weather permitting), branches are to be placed out prior to 6:00 A.M. on Fridays. Leaves will be picked up through November 17, 2023.
This service is intended to assist residents in maintaining their yards when small branches fall or trimming shrubs or bushes. No large tree limbs or removal of entire overgrown shrubs or bushes will be picked up. This service is not for removal of entire trees, sections of trees, or entire large bushes.
The requirements for Branch Pick Up are as follows:
Branches are to be stacked in one direction with thicker ends facing the street. DO NOT cross stack branches.
Branches are to be no longer than 8 feet in length or 6 inches in diameter. Piles are to be no higher than 3 feet and no longer than 8 feet along road (this is the maximum size of pile that will be picked up and only one pile per week). Smaller branches (one inch or less) should be stacked and tied with string or twine or placed in small bucket for dumping. All grass clippings, leaves, corn husks, evergreen clippings and small twigs or trimmings must be placed in heavy duty bags (33 gallon or smaller). No items placed in large garbage cans will be picked up.

Garden waste including vegetables, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, etc. will not be picked up. Place them in a bag and dispose of them in your weekly waste pickup.
The Village’s Branch Pick Up program is truly a service to Cullom residents. It encourages each resident and building owner to pride themselves in the health, aesthetics and value of their own home, building, surrounding yard and landscape. It promotes the community’s desire to beautify our neighborhoods while maintaining safe and healthy surroundings.
Branches, leaves and other yard waste generated by a private contractor, or individuals hired by a resident or property owners do not qualify for the Village’s Branch Pickup Program. Branches, leaves, and other yard waste of this type must be properly disposed of by said private contractor, or other private service and disposed of in their dumpsite.
The Village of Cullom reserves the right to refuse any pick up of items in violation of the intent of this community service.
Village of Cullom Board of Trustees
A big THANK YOU to everyone for the fantastic support in getting the water meters installed in every home and business. The past year was full of changes as we transitioned to the new monthly billing system too. Again, your cooperation is much appreciated.
A few things to remember…
The form for making ACH automatic debit payments can be found on the Village Website: villageofcullomillinois.com (select Applications/Permits tab) You will still be mailed the monthly water/garbage bill however, you will have the convenience of not having to write a check and can make sure you get your payment in on time. You can place the completed form in the drop box at Village Office.
Without timely payments, water services will be disconnected. Once a payment is received with the $50 reconnection fee, water will only be restored during normal business hours. Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
Concerns with billing, or any other village issues must be addressed at a Board Meeting (7:00 PM the fourth Tuesday of every month) or at the Village Office on Wednesdays 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Discussions will no longer take place at any Board Member’s residence or place of business. Emails to email@example.com is the fastest way for the board to respond to any concerns, comments or questions.
If you are having trouble making any utility payment including your garbage and water. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org we have resources we can pass on that may be able to help.
As many know, the construction of a new water tower will begin this Spring. Expected completion is September 2023. The new tower will be next to the well at North Ash Street. Once completed, the current tower will be dismantled. It’s been a long process, but well worth it and will be a great asset for the community.
Finally… 2023 looks to be an exciting year as the Board continues working for everyone to make Cullom a great place to live.
— Barbara Hahn, Mayor
