Landscape Waste Removal
The Village of Addison provides landscape waste pickup each year, April through November. Grass and other landscape waste should be kept separate from other solid wastes, and will be removed on normal garbage pickup days by the contracted waste hauler.
Acceptable yard waste will be collected either from bags or trash cans.
Residents may fill 30-33 gallon trash containers with landscape waste, provided they obtain landscape waste stickers at Village Hall and affix them to each container. There is no charge for the decals, which are necessary to make the landscape waste easily distinguishable and visible to the collectors. One sticker is needed per container. Please note: there is a weight limit of no more than 50 pounds per can.
Otherwise, residents may purchase paper biodegradable bags at area retailers including: Jewel/Osco, 140 W. Lake St.; Walgreen's, 16 E. Lake St.; Walmart, 1050 N. Rohlwing Road and Len's Ace Hardware, 30 W. Lake St. Stickers are not necessary when utilizing the paper bag system.
An unlimited amount of landscape waste may be placed at curbside, but it must be kept separate from other garbage. Mixed garbage will not be removed.
Large branches, tree cuttings, sod rolls, root balls and soil are not acceptable in the landscape waste program.
