Village’s Annual Curbside Clean-Up Week of September 14

 

Orland Park, IL (August 24, 2020) - The Village of Orland Park's yearly Curbside Spring Clean-Up has been rescheduled for the week of September 14-18, 2020.  This year's collection will again be offered on residents' regular garbage pick-up days.

CURBSIDE CLEAN-UP

Orland Park's Curbside Clean-Up is held in cooperation with the Village's refuse hauler, Waste Management. Residents are to place all trash and bulk items curbside by 6 a.m. on their pick-up day and in an orderly fashion, i.e. bagged, contained or bundled, with no loose garbage.

"The Village is happy to partner with Waste Management to offer the curbside clean-up," said Mayor Keith Pekau. "This will be the seventh year that we've offered curbside pick-up and each year we see an increase in the amount of household items getting safely and properly disposed of."

Residents can dispose of durable goods or household items like furniture, textiles, carpets, as well as white goods including washers, dryers and refrigerators. Residents should note that the doors on any white goods and appliances should be removed before being placed at the curb to prevent children from playing on or around them.

"Last year's volume for the clean-up was almost 400 tons," said Pekau. “We are happy we were able to reschedule the pickup and provide this service to residents again this year.”

Those wishing to dispose of/recycle electronics and other materials not accepted during Curbside Clean-up Week can utilize the At Your Door Program and schedule a pickup date.
