Illinois law prohibits disposing of yard waste (lawn clippings, brush, branches, pumpkins, etc.) with regular household refuse. The Village provides curbside collection of yard waste, however, additional collection procedures and charges apply. The yard waste collection program does not include the collection or disposal of soil and dirt.
Yard Waste Bags & Stickers
Residents are required to purchase yard waste bags from local home improvement stores and affix a Village yard waste sticker on the bag. Stickers can be purchased at Village Hall, Grand Foods, and Lakeside Foods for $2.50 each. Bags will be picked up curbside on your designated yard waste pick-up day. Other yard waste, like brush and branches, must be bundled with rope (not wire) and each bundle must have a sticker affixed.
Yard waste must be set out curbside by 7 AM on your regular refuse collection day. From April through the end of November, yard waste is collected twice per week. The standard yard waste schedule for the Village is as follows:
Monday Collection: Monday and Thursday
Tuesday Collections: Tuesday and Friday
Wednesday Collections: Wednesday and Friday
