Waste Management Leaf / Landscape Pick-up Extended

The Village’s curbside leaf pick-up has been completed for the West side of the Village. There is one last curbside pick-up for the East side of the Village scheduled for the week of Monday, November 21st. (Leaves must be out by Monday for pick-up during the week).

As residents have probably noticed, many trees have yet to lose their leaves. This is primarily due to a wet summer and mild fall weather. Many residents have called the Village concerned with how to dispose of leaves once the Village’s curbside leaf pick up program concludes at the end of next week (the program finishes on the west side of town this week) and Waste Management’s free bagged leaf pick up program concludes at the end of the month.

The Village is not planning to extend the curbside leaf pick up program at this time as we have to prep our dump trucks for snow removal operations. However, we understand our residents’ concerns, which is why we’ve contacted Waste Management and received a two-week extension of their yard waste and leaf pick up season. This extension means yard waste and leaves can still be put in bags at the curb for Waste Management to collect through Friday, December 9th. With this extension, a sticker is required on any bag of yard waste at the curb; however, bagged leaves will still be picked up for free (no sticker needed).

Kane County Hoarding Task Force - Information and Assistance


What is hoarding?

"Hoarding is a complex disorder that is made up of three connected problems: 1) collecting too many items, 2) difficulty getting rid of items, and 3) problems with organization. These problems can lead to significant amounts of clutter which can severely limit the use of living spaces, pose safety and/or health risks, and result in significant distress and/or impairment in day-to-day living."  -  International OCD Foundation

North Aurora is a member of the Kane County Hoarding Task Force, which provides individuals, agencies, and organizations with the tools to help with this issue and aims to serve as a clearinghouse of hoarding information and resources in Kane County, Illinois. 

The Kane County Hoarding Task Force was formed in 2014 to create a holistic approach to dealing with hoarding situations in Kane County. Member agencies work together to address all aspects of care, including mental health, senior services, animal control, cleanup and prevention of recidivism.

Waste Management Trash Toters

87% of North Aurora residents currently use the sticker program to dispose of garbage. As a reminder, both the current contract and the new contract allows residents to rent a 96-gallon trash toter from Waste Management. The current price to rent a toter is $28 a month; however, under the new contract beginning June 1st, the monthly price is dropping to $23.

Toters may not make sense for everyone, but they do provide the storage capacity of approximately three-standard size garbage cans. Toters have wheels and come with attached lids to secure trash. Stickers are still required for trash items that don’t fit in the toter or for any additional receptacles. If you have any questions about the trash toters or are interested in renting one, please contact Waste Management at 1-800-796-9696.
