Yard waste pickup set to begin April 20

Republic Services has delayed the start of yard waste collection in Hinsdale from April 1 until Monday, April 20.

Republic told the village that residents can take large quantities of landscape waste to one of three waste transfer stations in DuPage County.

They are

• AK Mulch & Firewood, 631 E. Wildwood Ave., Villa Park, (630) 530-6900

• Anderson Landscape Supply, 787 S. Route 83, Elmhurst, (630) 833-1251

• DuPage Yard Waste/Midwest Compost, 1195 W. Washington St., West Chicago, (630) 876-8900

For smaller quantities, Republic suggests managing landscape waste with green lawn care practices or composting.

“This is not an ideal solution, but it was suggested by Republic Services as a temporary measure,” George Peluso, director of public services for the village, wrote in an email.

Residents with questions should call the public works department at (630) 789-7042 or Republic Services Allied Waste at (630) 964-3232.
