Yard waste service by Environmental Recycling & Disposal resumes the week of March 15. This service is provided on a weekly basis through the week of December 15. Residents are allowed to place yard waste in biodegradable kraft type bags or use the 95-gallon yard waste cart provided by Environmental Recycling & Disposal.
Yard waste consists of grass trimmings, leaves, twigs, branches, shrubbery cuttings, outdoor plants and flowers. Tree limbs are also acceptable and should be less than four inches in diameter bundled a maximum of two feet in diameter and three feet in length.
Unacceptable items include plastic bags, animal waste, cardboard, concrete, rock, fruits, vegetables, dirt, stone, indoor plants, tree roots and stumps larger than three inches.
Place carts and/or bags at the curb with the wheels against the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your assigned collection day and remove the same day. Keep carts at least four feet from parked cars, mailboxes and other obstacles that may prevent Environmental from picking it up.
To request a cart or report a missed pickup, contact Environmental Recycling & Disposal at 815-725-4555 during normal business hours.
