Brush Drop-off ProgramThe Public Works Department and the Park District operate a site on 71st Street, just west of Woodridge Drive, where residents may drop off their brush. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month, from May through October. The price is $5 for the first carload ($3 for same day returning car) and $10 per pickup truck, van or trailer. The Village site does not require bundling, has no length requirement, and can accept branches up to 8” in diameter. Only branches accepted; no leaves or grass clippings. Proof of residency is required. Chips generated by this program are made available to residents free of charge at the Woodridge Dr. site throughout the growing season.
This program is available to all single-family residences within the Village's incorporated boundaries. During the program, an unlimited number of leaves may be placed in biodegradable paper bags and brought out to the curb for collection without stickers. The bags may be a maximum of 30 gallons in capacity and weigh up to 50 pounds. The bags may contain only leaves. Groot will not pick up leaf bags with comingled landscape waste, such as sod, brush, or grass clippings.
