2023 Free Leaf Collection Nov. 6 - Dec. 1

Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: August 29, 2023

Free Leaves in November

As part of the contract between the Village of Westmont and Waste Management, there will be free leaf collection beginning Monday, November 6 and ending on Friday, December 1.  Residents will be allowed to put out unlimited kraft paper bags of leaves free of charge next to their garbage on their scheduled garbage pick-up day.  No stickers will be required for bags of leaves during this time frame.  Only kraft paper yard waste bags can be used for this free program.  This program is for leaves only.  Grass clippings and other yard waste materials are NOT part of this program and will require a yard waste sticker.

NOTE: Westmont does not have a curbside leaf pick-up program.  Leaves raked into the street will not be collected and may result in a fine.

Each year from April until December, Waste Management provides a Yard Waste Pick-up Program. In 2023, the Yard Waste Collection Program ends on Friday, December 15. Residents can put grass clippings and other yard waste into kraft bags for pick-up.  Each bag of yard waste will require a yard waste sticker. Yard waste stickers can be purchased at Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy Street; Bales Ace Hardware, 20 E. Quincy Street; Mariano’s, 150 W. 63rd Street; and Jewel-Osco, Cass & Ogden and 55th & Holmes in Clarendon Hills.

Waste Management also provides a free Brush Pick-up Program. Please visit the village website to review specific requirements for the Brush Pick-up Program. In 2023, the Brush Pick-up Collection Program ends on Friday, December 15.
