Collection of bundled brush and yard waste is underway through November. Bundled brush and yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, shrubs, vines and storm debris are picked up along with garbage and recycling on regular refuse collection days from the same collection point.
Each brush bundle should be no larger than two feet in diameter and four feet in length and have a green yard waste sticker attached. Yard waste should be in 32-gallon paper bags or rigid containers, each with a green yard waste sticker attached.
Stickers are available for $2.50 each at Oak Park grocery and hardware stores and the Cashier’s Office at Village Hall, 123 Madison St.
Residents are urged to look for alternatives to bagging yard waste such as mulching mowers, leaf shredders or backyard compost piles.
