Waste Management provides a branch disposal service in conjunction with their yard waste program. Residents are already paying for this service as part of the residential disposal contract with Waste Management. 

BRANCH PICK-UP GUIDELINES

  • Branches will be picked up on the same day as your regular garbage service (April 1st - Nov. 30th). 
  • All yard waste and branches must be placed at the curb in accordance with regular trash regulations.
  • Brush and branches must measure three inches or less in diameter.
  • All branches must be cut into four foot lengths or less and bundled with string or twine. The bundle total weight should be 50 pounds or less.
  • As of June 1, 2019, Waste Management will take over the Village's branch pick-up service. Branches placed on the parkway for pick up must meet all Waste Management’s guidelines.
  • In the event of a major storm, the Village will provide the chipper service for residents.

TREE REMOVALS

  • Residents are responsible for the disposal of any materials that do not conform to Waste Management’s guidelines.
  • Seniors in need of financial assistance for tree removal should apply for funds through the Good Neighbor Fund in order to hire a contractor.
  • Waste Management will not accept any limb in excess of three inches in diameter. If using a tree service for the removal of a tree, we recommend the contractor remove all the materials as well.
