If all sources of water have been securely turned off and the meter is moving, a leak exists somewhere in your home. It may be necessary to call a plumber to locate and repair the leak.

Republic Services (formerly Allied Waste) provides residential garbage pick-up services for the Village. Two different toters are used. Garbage toters are for regular household waste. Yard Waste toters are for yard waste only.
One garbage toter goes with each home. Yard Waste toters and additional garbage toters can be leased directly from Republic Services for $30 each per
year. Call 708-385-8252. While the yard waste toters are for yard waste only from April 1 to December 1, residents may use the yard waste toters for regular household garbage
during the winter months of December, January, February, and March. Residents MUST NOT place household garbage in the yard waste toters April through November.
As an alternate to the yard waste toter, residents may use degradable paper bags for yard waste as long as the bags can be handled and loaded by one man without breakage or tearing.
Any branches placed in yard waste toters must fit inside the toter. Small branches placed next to the toter will also be picked up by Republic Services if they are bundled in lengths of 4 feet or less and tied with twine. Individual branches must not exceed 4 inches in diameter.
You may place items such as washers, dryers, hot water heaters, furniture, furnaces, stoves, air conditioners, refrigerators, carpet, box springs, and mattresses out with your regular garbage pick-up. Do not place these items on the curb prior to the night before your pick up day.
No garbage or toters should be placed on the curb prior to the night before your pick up day. Empty toters should be retrieved as soon as possible after garbage is collected, especially on windy days.
The Public Works Department will pick up items such as branches, concrete, lumber, dirt, sod, stone, metal, and dead animals. Call 339-2323 to place your address on the list for pickup. Most pickups are scheduled within 48 hours.
Have sufficient containers for all your garbage. This will prevent garbage from blowing around the neighborhood and will help keep our community beautiful.
If you have a concern with Republic Services, call them directly at 385-8252 to resolve the issue. If you are unable to resolve the issue, call the Village of South Holland administration office at 210-2904.
Small branches placed next to toter will be picked up by Republic Services if they are bundled in lengths of 4 feet or less and tied with twine. Individual branches must not exceed 4 inches in diameter.
The Public Works Department will pick up branches that are placed on the curb line. Public Works employees may not remove branches from other parts of the yard. Tree branch pick-up takes place on the day after your normal garbage pick-up, no need to call for branch pick-up. Tree branch pick-up service ends November 15 so the trucks can be outfitted with snow plows. Pick-up service resumes April 1st.
Whole Christmas trees may be placed curbside for pick up during the first two weeks of January.

It is a violation of Village Ordinance to park on the street after a snowfall of TWO INCHES. Because snow plows need to work efficiently to keep streets clean and safe, your vehicle may be towed at your expense.
As plows clear the streets, they push the snow toward the curb. That snow will be pushed in front of driveway entrances. There is no way to avoid this. Each resident is responsible for clearing enough of this snow to allow access to their driveway. Residents may choose to hire a teen or plow service to assist them. The highest priority of the Public Works plow drivers must be to make the streets as safe as possible for vehicle traffic and the passage of emergency vehicles. Please be aware that 90 miles of South Holland streets must be kept clear and salted.
Do not shovel or blow snow into the street. This is a safety hazard. The snow in front of your driveway entrance should be moved to the grass parkway or the yard.
Call J.U.L.I.E. at 800-892-0123 to have any power and utility lines marked before you dig a flowerbed, plant a tree, or put in a pool.
