To the Burr Ridge Community,

This past weekend, we gathered with you all for the 2nd Annual Taste of Burr Ridge & Car Show, and what a day it was! The Chicago Tribune noted this event as one of the most successful taste events since the pandemic, both in terms of turnout and restaurant participation. Thank you for showing your support to our local restaurants and for bringing your families out for this beautiful event. We are so grateful to our event sponsors, taste vendors, car show participants and volunteers for contributing to this enjoyable day. 

With Halloween just around the corner, there are a number of family-friendly festivities to enjoy. See below for more details on upcoming community events. Reminder: the official trick-or-treating hours in Burr Ridge are 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday, October 31st. Please use extra caution if you are driving on Halloween to ensure the safety of trick-or-treaters. If you do not want trick-or-treaters to visit your house, we encourage you to simply turn off your outside lights. 

Wishing you and your families a beautiful fall season and a Happy Halloween!

Annual Brush Pickup on October 24th

It's that time of year! Annual Brush Pickup is scheduled for Monday, October 24th. Residents who have brush that is too large to be picked up by the normal landscape waste through Groot can place it beside the road. Brush will be collected with a grapple-claw mechanism and removed to a remote site for chipping. This process will allow the work to be performed quicker, quieter, and with less chipping debris on the street. Make sure to put branches in the parkway by no later than 7:00 a.m. on October 24th. Please visit the Village website to review the specific pickup requirements, as the Village cannot require the contractor to return to a site if it does not comply. 

Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

The Village of Burr Ridge has begun examining some of its sanitary sewers using smoke testing procedures. Smoke testing helps locate defects in the Village’s sanitary sewer pipes. This procedure forces a harmless smoke into the sewer pipes below ground. This work will only affect some areas and you will receive a notification if you are located within one of those areaa. More information about sanitary sewer smoke testing is available on the Village website
