Elimination of Curbside Yard Waste Collection
After careful consideration, the Village Board has decided to eliminate the curbside yard waste collection service in the Village for all yard waste EXCEPT fall leaf pickup, effective January 1, 2016. This decision was based on the continued abuse of the program, resulting in public works employees spending a large amount of time collecting yard waste and expensive wear and tear on Village equipment. Residents will still be allowed to bring yard waste such as grass clippings, brush and tree trimmings (as long as they conform to the current policy of branches 4 feet long or less and 2 inches or less in diameter) to the Village Garage at any time of year. Please place your yard waste in the designated areas.
Along with the elimination of curbside pickup, the scrap metal bin at the Village Garage is being removed. The area was never intended to be a bulky waste dump site, but it continues to be abused as one and is costly and time consuming to maintain.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please call the Village Office at 920-583-4400.
