The City of Evanston will begin weekly residential yard waste collections for the 2017 season on Monday, April 3. Yard waste will be collected on residents' regular refuse and recycling collection days through Friday, December 8.

The City offers two options to dispose of yard waste:

  1. Purchase and fill a 95-gallon yard waste cart. These reusable carts do not require the use of bags. To order a yard waste cart, residents can complete the online order form at, or visit the City Collector's office, 2100 Ridge Ave. A cart costs $82.50 plus a $25 annual fee. Yard waste fees are assessed annually and appear on residents' water, sewer and sanitation bills.
  2. Place yard waste in paper yard waste bags and affix each bag with a City of Evanston yard waste sticker. Yard waste stickers are available for purchase for $1.75 each at Jewel-Osco grocery stores, Lemoi Hardware, The Chalet (Wilmette), The Home Depot, the Levy Senior Center and the City Collector's office. Plastic bags will not be collected.

Special pick-up fees for yard waste collection will be assessed after 48 hours for bags without stickers. Three bags will be charged $25. Each additional three bags will be charged $10.
