Unlimited Containerized Landscape Waste Collection Set for April 6th - 10th

GURNEE, IL - March 25, 2009 - During the first full week in April (April 6-10), the Village’s refuse/recycling hauler will be collecting unlimited containerized landscape waste at no charge to the customer or the Village. This collection will take place on the regular pick-up day.
In order for the landscape waste to be collected, it must be containerized in one of the following ways:

  • Kraft-type paper bag not to exceed 45 lbs.
  • Rigid cans not to exceed 32-gallons (regular garbage can).
  • Bundles of brush not to exceed 2 feet in diameter by 4 feet long
    and weighing no more than 60 pounds with no individual branch being
    greater than 3 inches in diameter. Must be bundled and tied with twine
    or string in distinct piles.

Landscape waste must be placed at the curb or the edge of the road by 6:00 a.m. on your pick-up day. Failure to have material out at this time will result in the waste not being collected. As a result, the resident will have to wait until the annual collection program begins on April 13th and follow the regular collection guidelines.

For more information on yard waste collection or branch/brush collection, please contact Waste Management at 1-800-796-9696 or review a copy of the Solid Waste & Recycling Collection Guide, available on the Village’s website at www.gurnee.il.us or Village Hall.
