Yardwaste Collection begins the week of March 31
Seasonal yardwaste collection begins the week of March 31, on the regularly scheduled refuse collection day. Please note that yardwaste placed out before that time will not be collected.
Yardwaste must be contained in a two-ply, thirty gallon wet strength paper bag or a 95-gallon yardwaste cart; plastic bags may not be used. Yardwaste carts may be purchased directly from ARC Disposal / Republic Services. Please contact them at 847/981-0091 for current pricing and to purchase a cart.
The City of Park Ridge no longer collects brush and branches for chipping. Twigs and small brush can be broken up and placed in large yardwaste bags or carts; plastic bags may not be used. Branches under 3 inches in diameter and 5 feet in length can be tied together in bundles weighing less than 50 pounds and placed alongside your regular yardwaste for collection by ARC Disposal / Republic Services on your scheduled refuse collection day. Residents with larger branches or full tree removals will need to contract a tree service company or landscaper to arrange for removal.
