"Spring Clean-Up" Day will be Held the Week of April 19, 2021

La Grange Spring Clean Up

This year's "Spring Clean-Up" will be held the week of April 19, 2021, on your regular refuse collection day as follows:

Residents north of 47th Street - MONDAY, APRIL 19, 2021

Residents south of 47th Street - THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2021

The "Spring Clean-Up" day gives residents the opportunity on one day to set out an unlimited amount of household refuse. Residents are required to affix two special "Spring Clean-Up" stickers ($3 per sticker) in total to the waste set out for collection. The Spring Clean Up stickers are available for purchase where refuse and yard waste stickers are sold. Residents can also use two regular refuse stickers ($4 per sticker) if it is more convenient, however, the hauler will not be able to refund the price difference. Please affix your stickers to your refuse can so that they are easy for the hauler to see.  

"Spring Clean-Up" is a one time pick-up. Unfortunately, if you miss your scheduled clean-up day it cannot be rescheduled.  Residents will receive a postcard from Flood Brothers with more information.

 Flood Brothers will collect large and miscellaneous items from single and two-family residences at the curb such as:

EXAMPLES OF ACCEPTABLE ITEMS:

  • Appliances
  • Bulk items (bicycles, fans, etc.)
  • Carpet (must be cut down to 4 feet in length, securely bundled, and less than 30 pounds in weight)
  • All Furniture
  • Mattresses should be bagged

Acceptable items are to be placed next to your regular refuse at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day. Items other than furniture, large bulk items and appliances must be placed in bags, cans and/or boxes, not larger than 35 gallons or heavier than 50 pounds each.

EXAMPLES OF UNACCEPTABLE ITEMS:

  • Electronics     
  • Construction and/or demolition debris
  • Scrap wood and lumber
  • Paint
  • Concrete, asphalt, rocks bricks
  • Car parts

Yard Waste is NOT included in the “Spring Clean Up”, but will be collected if properly prepared, stickered and set out on your regular collection day.
