Bulk item and yard waste pickup days change January 1st

In order to provide better collection of vegetative yard waste, the Village Sanitation Division will change vegetative yard waste pick-up days to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting in the new year. They will no longer pick up vegetation on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The days for pickup of bulk items, will change to Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

The changes take effect beginning January 1st, but there will be no collections that day because of the New Year’s holiday.

The pickup days for residential household garbage and recycling are not changing. The new schedule simply swaps collection days for yard vegetation and bulk items, such as old appliances and furniture.

The full weekly collection schedule for all residential pickups is:

  • Monday - Garbage and Vegetation
  • Tuesday - Bulk & multi-unit recycling
  • Wednesday - Garbage and Vegetation
  • Thursday - Bulk & single-family recycling
  • Friday - Garbage and Vegetation

The main benefit of the new schedule changes is that residents will now receive vegetation pick-up three days a week instead of two. And since a lot of vegetation is put out on the weekend, the new Monday pick-up plan will help neighborhoods look better one day sooner each week. 

The changes also allow the Village Sanitation Division to work more efficiently, freeing up resources to provide better service.

Before the Village Council approved the change on November 8, the Public Works Department gave a PowerPoint presentation explaining the benefits of the change.
