Yard Waste Information

Leave Vacuuming

Since leaf burning is not permitted in the Village, during the fall season, Waste Management will circulate throughout the Village to vacuum leaves. This service generally occurs from October 15 - November 30th depending on weather conditions.  Please have your leaves out at the curb to ensure pick up. Residents will need to rake their leaves as close to the edge of the road as possible. To maintain proper drainage of the culverts and storm drains, do not place leaves on roads or in ditch lines. Leaf piles containing branches, sticks, grass clippings or garden waste will not be picked up as these items cause damage to the equipment.


Waste Management will circulate throughout the Village on your normal garbage pick-up day to pick up bundled branches.  Please have your branches out the day prior to your collection day to ensure pick up that week.  Branches must be bundled no longer than 4 ft. and no greater than 50 pounds.  For entire tree removal, please contact a tree removal service. The Village will not pick up branches from an entire tree.

Grass Clippings and Other Waste

Waste Management will pick up grass clippings and other yard waste (such as leaves) on your normal garbage day (Mid April - Mid Nov). Clippings and yard waste must be in a paper yard waste bag with a Waste Management sticker on them. Bags and stickers can be purchased from Walgreens, located on Grand Avenue.  Stickers can also be purchased at Village Hall or you can contact Waste Management (847-395-2020) and subscribe to their seasonal lawn waste service.

Christmas Tree Pickup

In agreement with the Village of Lake Villa, Waste Management collects Christmas trees for village residents on. To ensure that your tree is properly collected, please remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, etc. and place the tree at the curbside. As a reminder, if you need to use a bag while transporting the tree out of your home, please remove the bag before leaving the tree at the curbside. Trees to be collected must be clean; having no tinsel, lights, ornaments, etc. Trees must be manageable for one driver.
