[ARCHIVED] 2018 Brush Pick-Up & Yard Waste Programs Resume April 2

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: March 13, 2018

Waste Management’s Yard Waste Program and Brush Pick-Up Program resume on April 2 and end December 14. 

Yard waste typically consists of grass clippings and leaves. Yard Waste must be placed in kraft paper bags or a container that is 32 gallons or less clearly marked "YARD WASTE".  Each Yard Waste container or kraft bag must have a Yard Waste sticker, which is GREEN in color, placed on them. There is no limit to the number of containers or bags you can place out on your regular service day. Place Yard Waste next to your garbage cans on the same day as your regular garbage service day. Yard Waste stickers can be purchased at Village Hall, Bales Ace Hardware, or Jewel-Osco.

Waste Management also provides a weekly brush pickup program that coincides with the Yard Waste Collection Program. Branches and tree limbs must be tied with twine or string into bundles no more than 4 feet long and 1 ½ feet in diameter. Each bundle must weigh less than fifty (50) pounds. Trees, stumps, and branches larger than four (4) inches in diameter cannot be collected as brush. Brush should be placed with your other refuse on your usual pickup day. No sticker is required for brush pickup.  

For more information about these programs, contact Waste Management at or 1-800-796-9696.
