As of 2012, curbside collection was changed to a fee-based service. Materials must be placed in bags with Village-issued stickers in order to be collected curbside. Non-expiring stickers cost $2 per bag (up to 50 gallon) and is sold in multiples of 5 at all municipal facilities and one retail outlet. Another disposal option is to transport materials to the free drop-off site at the Public Works facility at 5115 Terminal Drive.
The 2017 Yard/Garden Waste curbside collection schedule is as follows:
- Week of May 8th (the whole village)
- Week of November 13th (the whole village)
Please follow the yard/garden waste guidelines below:
Place all material curbside in open bags or trash containers by 6:00 a.m. on Monday of the collection week. The contractor will make only one pass and will not go back through again.
All bags must have a Village-issued sticker on bags in order to be collected.
Include leaves, garden waste, thatch, grass clippings, non-woody plant materials, and evergreen clippings (less than six inches in length).
Material must be clean of debris or it will be left on site.
Do not rake leaves into the street - place on the backside of the curb.
