The Village’s yard waste program, through our garbage company, begins in April and ends the last Monday in November. Please do not mix your yard waste or grass clippings with your normal trash. You MUST put yard waste and grass clippings in the brown yard bags. You may purchase already labeled bags and stickers at the following locations: CVS Drugstore and Whitmore Ace Hardware. There is a small fee for the already labeled bags and stickers. The stickers are needed if you use an unlabeled brown bag. The refuse company for the village is A&J Disposal 708-258-3250.
***It is against village ordinance to blow grass clippings into the street.
Helpful Hint: If you leave the clippings on your lawn, they will form a thatch which is actually good for your lawn. This thatch acts as a protective barrier that preserves soil and moisture during dry spells, and keeps grass roots healthy as a result.
