Compost & Yard Waste Collection Reminders

Northbrook Reminders

Nothing says fall more than brightly colored leaves and festive pumpkins. As the season wraps up, did you know that you can compost both of these things together? Waste Management offers compost and yard waste collection on your regular pickup day through their sticker program or year-round subscription program. New from Waste Management: residents can now compost meat and bones! See what else can be composted here

With the sticker program, residents can dispose of yard waste and compost from April 1-November 30 using plastic/metal containers or Kraft-type bags and prepaid disposal stickers. Stickers are $2.12 each and can be purchased at Village Hall and local grocery and home/garden stores.

With the subscription program, Waste Management will collect unlimited yard waste and compost weekly from April 1-November 30. From December 1-March 31, collection takes place every other week. Subscribers can place overflow yard waste and organics in plastic/metal containers or Kraft-type bags for no extra charge. Prepaid disposal stickers are not required for subscribers.
