Date Issued: March 13, 2019
Waste Management’s Yard Waste and Brush Pick-Up Programs resume on April 1, 2019. These weekly programs will continue through mid-December.
YARD WASTE PROGRAM
Yard waste, which is typically grass clippings and leaves, 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 for pick-up on your regular service day, but each bag or container must have a yard waste sticker attached. Place yard waste next to your garbage cans on the same day as your regular garbage service day. Yard waste stickers cost $3.19 per sticker and can be purchased at Village Hall located at 31 W. Quincy, Bales Ace Hardware located at 20 E. Quincy, or Jewel-Osco located at 4 E. Ogden in Westmont and 303 Holmes Ave. in Clarendon Hills.
BRUSH PICK-UP PROGRAM
Waste Management also provides a weekly brush pick-up 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 next to your other refuse on your usual pick-up day. No sticker is required for brush pick-up.
