Last Week for Yard Waste Pick Up: December 2-6, 2019
The City of Joliet and Waste Management remind all residents that the last week for yard waste pickup will be Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 6, 2019. Yard waste collection will resume Monday, March 9, 2020.
Yard waste materials consist of grass and shrubbery cuttings, leaves, tree limbs and other materials accumulated as the result of care of lawns, shrubbery, vines, and trees.
Yard waste should be placed at the curb or alley at the same time as garbage and recycling (7:00 a.m.). If it is not outside when the recycling driver comes by, they will not make a second trip to come back and pick it up and the vehicles now have cameras installed to see who does and does not have their recycling out at the curb.
Yard waste must be placed in either 30-gallon kraft paper bags or a rigid container no greater than 32-gallons. Non-standard containers such as drums, baskets, etc. will not be collected. Your designated yard waste containers must be clearly marked so it is visible from the street. Only yard waste should be placed in a cart or container designated for yard waste. Free Yard waste labels are available at the following locations: City Hall (150 W. Jefferson Street) & Joliet Jewel Foods Stores (1401 W. Jefferson St., 1537 N. Larkin Avenue & 2480 Il. Rt. 59). Yard Waste labels do not need to be placed on the paper yard waste bags, only on the containers.
