The Village of Algonquin, IL

Welcome to the website for the Village of Algonquin!

Free Leaf and Branch Collection

Free leaf pickup by Groot will begin on October 1 for Algonquin residents and will continue through December 15 on your normal collection day. There is no collection of yard waste from December 16 through March 2018. All leaves must be placed in standard paper yard waste bags or in reusable 32-gallon trash containers that are clearly marked. You may use a large, visible red “X” to indicate yard waste. Leaves in loose piles will not be collected.

During this time period, Groot will also provide free pickup of branches. The branches must be tied in bundles which are not more than 4 feet in length, 2 feet in diameter, and less than 50 pounds in weight. Grass clippings and other yard waste (such as sod, dirt, or woodchips) will require a collection sticker. Any bags or cans that contain leaves mixed with other yard waste will also require a collection sticker. Also, please remember that putting leaves or yard debris into the street is prohibited by the Algonquin Municipal Code.
