Yard Waste Collection Programs in Crystal Lake, IL
Residents in the city of Crystal Lake have several options for disposing of their yard waste. Regular yard waste (grass clippings, weeds, twigs, and brush) is picked up weekly on the same day as your regular trash collection. Put your waste into biodegradable paper bags, which can be purchased at Ziegler’s Ace Hardware. You can also use an unlined rigid trash can for your yard waste; just make sure to mark it with a large X on the side. For your convenience, MDC Environmental also has 96-gallon yard waste toters available for lease at a nominal charge.

Branches must be under 6 feet long and 6 inches in diameter. No grass clippings or yard waste will be picked up at this time. A fall leaf pickup takes place from October through December each year.

Visit the city’s website to find out when your leaves are scheduled to be collected.
You can also drop off brush at the city’s wastewater treatment facility on Coventry Lane and Dartmoor Drive. Branches must be under 6 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter.
