The City is currently cleaning up the damage from yesterday’s storm. We have all Public Works crews working on this and have brought in additional contractors to assist. The priority will be to clear debris and downed limbs from the roadways to allow for safe travel. There will be a special refuse collection for public and private tree debris. Residents are asked to place cut and bundled tree debris in the parkway for pickup. This collection does not include household items or trash, but is limited to tree limbs and branches. Due to the volume and extent of this damage, this clean up will take some time. We ask that residents remain patient as we work through this.
We understand that many residents are still without power. We are pressing ComEd to prioritize Elmhurst in restoring power in our community.
Residents should report power outages to ComEd at 1.800.edison1 or on their website:
