Welcome to the Village of Green Oaks

IBernard Wysocki would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Green Oaks internet site. Hopefully our site will provide you with needed information about the village of Green Oaks. The Village of Green Oaks is a small and proud community approximately 30 miles north of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois. Our community is rich in tradition that affords the pleasantries of quiet country living, excellent schools, access to major highways and tollways, single family home on large lots, all complemented by our growing commercial and retail business district.

If you are just browsing or are looking for specific information, our site has much to offer. I hope you will enjoy the information we have provided. If there is something you wish to find out about our village, you may send specific questions to vilgrnoaks@aol.com for an appropriate reply.

  Road Improvement Project

Updated: 9/25/2020

2020 Road Improvement Project –  The contractor continued work on O’Plaine and landscape restoration this week.  O’Plaine was milled, patched, and the first lift of asphalt will be placed today.  It will be paved with surface (final lift) Monday afternoon, and then striped on Wednesday.  The landscape contractor will finish the restoration next week as well.  After that the project will be complete, with punchlist and addressing of defects/issues as they arise remaining. 

2020 Drainage Improvement Project The Village’s contractor returned yesterday (Thursday) and today to address landscaping issues.  They added topsoil in some locations and over-seeded (among other activities).  Please do not remove the straw blanket from the roadside ditch along the frontage of your property.  It helps retain moisture and keep the seed in place.

SWALCO Update: Residential Waste Collection Services

The waste industry is indicating it is operating at nearly full capacity and is still able to provide regular collection for garbage and recyclables. One service that has been impacted throughout Lake County is the collection of bulky items or large items left outside of the garbage container, which will no longer be collected unless the material is placed in a rigid container or plastic bag.  The waste industry has told us they made this decision based on the safety of its drivers.  For specific information on the status of bulky item collection in your community please check the SWALCO Neighborhood Program Community Website (Green Oaks)

COVID-19 and Recycling Safety
