Yard Waste Pick-Up

yard waste (2).pngThe Village of Hawthorn Woods has an established yard waste pickup program with Waste Management. The yard waste service collects grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs and other yard waste materials and takes them to facilities where they can be used to create renewable energy or compost. 

There are two ways to participate in the program. The first option is to make an annual payment of $118.00 and receive unlimited service from April 1st - November 30th. To register for this service, please contact Waste Management Customer Service at 1 (800) 796-9696, or visit Waste Management Customer Service. Alternatively, yard waste stickers are required for individual pickups throughout the season and are available for purchase at Village Hall. Stickers can also be ordered for mail delivery through Waste Management. Stickers must be applied to each paper bag or bundle of brush for individual pick up at curb.

How it Works

Simply place your grass clippings, leaves and bundled limbs at the curb the morning of collection day (Wednesday). Grass, leaves and garden waste will be picked up weekly for all waste properly contained in wheeler carts, toters or bagged in Kraft paper bags. All waste must be at curbside and accessible for pick-up by 6:00 a.m.  All waste must be separate from garbage. Brush or branches are to be properly contained, bagged or bundled and tied so that one man can load into truck. All pieces must be cut into lengths not exceeding 4 foot, bundles not to be over 2.5 feet in diameter, and no individual pieces exceeding 8 inches in diameter. All stone and dirt must be off shrub and brush for disposal. 

Conditions of Service

Lawn and garden waste will be picked up from April 1st to November 30th of each year. Stickers must be applied to each kraft paper bag or bundle of brush for pick up at curb. For large cleanups, please contact Waste Management for special containers and rates.
