Will Waste Management collect grass clippings and yard waste?
Waste Management will collect yard waste on your regular collection day starting April 1 through November of each year. All yard waste materials must be in kraft-type biodegradable bags. Prepaid stickers are no longer needed. Branches and bundles will also be collected on the same day, provided that they are properly secured with string or twine. Branch bundles should not exceed 4 feet in length, and each bundle should not weigh more than 50 pounds. You can also rent yard waste carts for $2 per month, for a 1-year minimum, if you do not want to use kraft paper bags. These carts can be used for garbage during the winter months as well. To order this yard waste container, please call the Water Department at 815-838-0549, option 3. Your request will be processed, and you will receive a tracking number.
