When is yard waste collected?

Brush and yard debris are collected every Wednesday from early April through mid-November, and requests are no longer required for collection. Yard waste must be set out in 30-gallon, biodegradable paper bags; brush can be tied in small bundles with biodegradable twine or string, not exceeding four feet in length. The Village of Skokie does not collect grass clippings, dirt, or logs. On weeks with a Monday holiday, such as Memorial Day and Labor Day, and sometimes Fourth of July, yard waste is collected on the Saturday following the holiday.
