The five cubic yard volume limit for yard waste collection will resume on Monday, June 18, 2012. Residents are asked to keep this in mind as they do yard work over the weekend. Teams are working hard to clean up after the storms of the last few weeks. We appreciate your patience as we work to get back on schedule.
Per policy, yard waste over five cubic yards will be tagged as being out of compliance, including waste that remains uncollected from previous weeks. Residents should not be alarmed by the tags; this is part of the process to return to normal collections and should not be construed as placing fault or blame on residents. Remaining waste will be collected on the next scheduled pick up or may be scheduled for a special pick up dependent upon the amount and type of debris.
As a reminder, private contractors are required by law to dispose of the debris they create. Failure to dispose of this debris by private contractors can be pursued as illegal dumping.
Residents are encouraged to continue reporting missed yard waste collections online at 630CITY.coj.net
, by email at 630CITY@coj.net
, or by phone at 630-CITY (630-2489.)
