In addition to refuse and recycling collection, Waste Management is under contract to provide yard waste collection and leaf collection to Village residents.
Yard Waste Collection
Yard waste is collected weekly beginning April 1 through the week of November 30 on the same day that refuse and recycling are collected. Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable bags (brown paper), or cans (maximum 50 pounds) that are clearly marked as landscape waste. Stickers are not required. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected.
Branches should be tightly tied with biodegradable string or twine, in a bundle not exceeding four feet in length or 50 pounds in weight.
As an option for residents, Waste Management will provide a 60-gallon or 90-gallon container for the collection of yard waste for $3 per month during the collection period.
Leaf vacuuming will begin the week of October 19 and continue until Friday, December 1. Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb by Monday morning, for pickup by Waste Management that week. Leaves must be raked to within five feet of the curb and should not be placed in the gutter or street.
