Yard waste requires stickers for the months of April - September.

To avoid any confusion, all bagged yard waste (leaves, mixed grass leaves, fall clean up, etc.) shall be picked up at no charge during these months. Simply place out with your other garbage without a sticker.

Stickers can be purchased at the Village Hall, Jewel on 55th and the Clarendon Hills Hardware store in the downtown.

Refuse should be placed for pickup by 6 AM on the day of pickup and no earlier than an half hour prior to sunset the evening before. All refuse containers shall be removed from curb by 8 PM the day of refuse pickup.
