Weekly Yard Waste Collection Ends Nov. 30

November 13, 2017 09:00 AM
Collection of yard waste occurs on Galesburg residents’ regular solid waste collection day during specified times of the year. The City’s solid waste contractor, Waste Management, operates this program. The weekly collection of yard waste will end on Thursday, November 30th. Yard waste is only collected monthly during the winter months of December, January and February. The collection dates during the upcoming winter months are as follows:  December 11th to 15th, January 8th to 12th and February 5th to 9th. Weekly collection of yard waste will resume on Thursday, March 1, 2018.  
During cold weather, residents are advised to use paper yard waste bags for yard waste disposal instead of empty trash containers, as yard waste will freeze to the empty trash container and it will be unable to be emptied.
