Unlimited Containerized Landscape Waste Collection Set for April 3rd- 7th
During the first full week in April (Monday, April 3rd - Friday, April 7th), 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 10th 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.
The Village of Gurnee prohibits burning landscape waste. This ban includes a prohibition against leaf burning, the burning of brush or other landscape materials, construction materials, and bonfires. The Village does allow residents to create small outdoor wood burning fires. The ordinance permits residents to use portable outdoor fire pits and build small wood burning campfires. Residents who have historically disposed of autumn leaves by burning are requested to participate in the Leaf Collection Program. If you have any questions regarding the Village's burning restrictions, please contact the Village Hall at (847) 599-7500.
