FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GURNEE, IL - Due to the recent cold weather, Waste Management’s annual unlimited landscape waste collection program will be rescheduled to the week of Monday, April 22nd through Friday, April 26th in order to allow residents to take better advantage of the opportunity. Under this program, Village residents who receive service through the Village’s refuse contract with Waste Management are able to dispose of an unlimited amount of landscape waste at no cost. Collection will take place on each resident's regular pick-up day.
In order for the landscape waste to be collected, it must be put into a container such as a Kraft-type paper bag not to exceed 45 pounds, a rigid can not to exceed 32 gallons and/or bundles of brush not to exceed two feet in diameter by four feet long. Bundles must be tied with twine or string in distinct piles and weigh no more than 60 pounds with no individual branch being greater than three inches in diameter. Landscape waste must be placed at the curb or the edge of the road by 6:00 a.m. Failure to have materials out at this time could result in waste not being collected.
Regular yard waste collection through Waste Management’s subscription service or sticker program will begin as scheduled on Monday, April 15th . For any questions, contact Waste Management at (800) 796-9696 or Village Hall at (847) 599-7500.
