We live in a world in which nothing can go to waste anymore. Nowhere is this more evident than in our ability to transform the yard waste collected from every home.
Green waste will be picked up from April 1st through November 30th. There is NO additional charge for this service.
- Must be placed at curbside for collection no later than 6:30 am on the day of service and clearly labeled for the driver to identify
- Must be separate from garbage and recycling
- Must be placed in a biodegradable PAPER yard waste bag available at local retail stores or in a CLEARLY identified container that is no greater than 35-gallons and weighs no more than 50 pounds
- ALL reusable containers for green waste must be labeled “Yard Waste Only.” Yard waste stickers are available at the Village of Chicago Ridge for no charge.
Brush and branches must be contained, bagged, or bundled and tied. All pieces must be cut into 4-foot lengths or less. Branches should be less than 2 1/2” in diameter.
