There is a special schedule for yard waste pick up in communities that offer the service. The specific schedule depends on the city, neighborhood, type of yard waste and season.
In Champaign, Illinois for instance, residents sign up via email to be informed of the city’s special schedule for yard waste pick up. Many cities offer regularly scheduled once-a-year pick-up services for Christmas trees and seasonal tree trimmings.
In order to determine whether there is a special schedule in a particular community, residents should contact the local government’s public works department. Private companies also offer yard waste management services in many cities. In these cases, customers schedule pick up dates with the company and are charged for the service.
