Yard Waste Pickup
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. The Village of Hawthorn Woods has an established Waste Management yard waste program. To participate in the program, an annual payment of $118.00 is required. To register for this service, please contact Waste Management Customer Service at 1(800) 796-9696, or visit www.wm.com. Yard waste stickers are available for purchase in-person at Village Hall. Stickers can also be ordered for mail delivery through Waste Management.
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 and tagged. 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 (4'), bundles not to be over 2.5 feet (2.5') in diameter, and no individual pieces exceeding 8 inches (8") 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 - 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.
