Kirkland Public Works NO LONGER Accepting Yard Waste

The Village of Kirkland is announcing that beginning Monday, September 2nd, Kirkland Public Works will NO LONGER be able to accept Yard Waste at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The Village of Kirkland has been informed that IDNR (Illinois Department of Natural Resources) and IEPA (Illinois Environmental Protection Agency) does not allow material storage at the Wastewater Treatment Plant due to the property being within a FEMA National Regulatory Floodway.
An alternative solution for our residents would be to utilize the Yard Waste service offered to the Village of Kirkland by Waste Management on normal collection days. All yard waste must be placed in approved Yard Bags or a container clearly marked “Yard Waste”. Any branches or limbs must be cut up in 3-4 foot sizes and bundled together with no bundles weighing more than 25 lbs.
We hope you understand the decision the Village of Kirkland had to make and apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks!
