Yard Waste Tips...



In Prospect Heights, yard waste is collected weekly, on Fridays, from the last week of March through the 1st week of December. Please do not mix trash with yard waste. Cans containing mixed trash and yard waste will not be collected. Other important items to note:

  • Bundled brush (with a biodegradable twine) is also taken with yard waste. Bundles cannot exceed 4 feet in length or exceed 50 pounds.
  • Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable kraft paper bags, not exceeding 32 gallons in capacity for collection. Yard waste placed in plastic bags will not be collected.
  • Metal or plastic cans are also acceptable, provided they do not exceed 32 gallons in capacity and are marked on the outside with twelve (12) inch high red X’s around the body of the can.
