Curbside collection of yard waste will resume in the fall.

On Monday, May 4, Streets Division collection crews completed the spring yard waste collection rounds.

Residents should not place yard waste to the curb at this time.

Rather than placing yard waste to the curb, residents can take the material to one of the Streets Division drop-off sites. Residents may also want to try composting or mulching grass clippings into their lawn.

The drop-off sites for yard waste are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd, 4602 Sycamore Ave, and 402 South Point Rd.

Due to the pandemic, the drop-off sites are open new hours and there are additional restrictions.

The sites are open Monday to Friday 7:30am to 3:00pm and Saturday 9:00am to 4:00pm. Residents are expected to have their vehicles unloaded and then exit from the facility by the closing time. In order to achieve this, the last vehicle will be let into the site 10 minutes before the posted closing time. Others will be asked to return another day.

Only two vehicles will be allowed into the unloading area at a single time. This is to help residents maintain appropriate social distance from each other and Streets Division staff.

As a result, residents using the sites should anticipate long lines and wait times.

The start of the fall curbside yard waste collection period is weather dependent and will be announced when that date is known.

Additional information about yard waste, including the difference between yard waste and brush, can be found on the Streets Division’s website.
