Warm weather prompts early opening for city yard waste/ brush drop-off site
Due to the unseasonably warm spring weather, the city’s yard waste/ brush drop-off site at 4071 – 88th Avenue will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays March 23 and 30 and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays March 24 and 31. The site will be open regularly from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Monday, April 2. It will be open Mondays through Saturdays, excluding holidays, through November. The site is closed on Sundays. The yard waste/ brush drop-off site is available to city of Kenosha residents only. Proper identification displaying proof of residency is required. NO COMMERCIAL DISPOSAL IS ALLOWED. Yard waste can be taken to the site in city-approved biodegradable bags or in clean containers, but they must be clean and free of debris prior to disposal. The city processes the yard waste into a high-grade compost, which is available free of charge to city residents. Brush and branches may be dropped off April 2 through November at the site free of charge. Brush does not need to be bundled. Brush up to six inches in diameter and 12 feet long is accepted. There is no weight limit for brush drop-off. Note: The bulk drop-off site at 1001 – 50th Street does not accept yard waste or brush and branches. Spring curbside yard waste pickup begins May 7 and continues through June 2 on regular garbage pickup days for city residents. The city requires that residents place their yard waste in city-approved biodegradable bags during curbside collection.
