Yard Waste Sticker Program


Effective April 1, 2008, the Village requires a yard waste sticker affixed to yard waste bags placed at the curb for collection (unless you have purchased the Annual Yard Waste Collection Service Subscription). Yard waste stickers cost $2.00 each and are sold at the Village Hall and Grand Foods.

Stickers can be placed on biodegradable paper yard waste bags, garbage cans no larger than 44-gallons, or on bundles of branches and brush. Yard waste will continue to be collected on Wednesdays beginning mid-April through mid-December.

Please call the Public Works Department at 847-835-4134 regarding questions.

Annual Yard Waste Collection Service Subscription

Again this year the Village will operate the yard waste collection service. The Annual Yard Waste Collection Subscription will allow subscribers to place up to four (4) cans, bags, or bundles of landscape waste material at the curb each week for the duration of the yardwaste season from  mid-April through mid-December without the need for yardwaste stickers.

The Annual Subscription fee is $120, and is non-refundable and will be included on your quarterly Village Utility bill.  To subscribe for this service contact the Finance Department at 847-835-4113, or to subscribe on line, go to the Forms section of this web page and form can be filled out and and submitted on line.
