Village Residents are reminded that GFL will not start yard waste pick-Up until Monday, April 3, 2023.

While the storms over the last few weeks brought down many branches, area landfills will not be accepting yard waste until April so residents SHOULD NOT be piling branches at the curb before then.

When yard waste pick-Up begins, branches must not exceed 4 feet (4') in length and 2 inches (2") in diameter, and must be tied in a bundle or placed in compost bags or cans clearly marked as "Yard Waste".

Thank you for your cooperation.
