The most recent flier issued about "Yard Waste Collection Dos and Don'ts" mentioned "prepaid Yellow Yard Waste Tag(s)" and "Free stickers (...) available at Public Works."
The Village wishes to clarify that these two types of labels are not interchangeable.
Per Village ordinance, leaves and yard waste, regardless of container, must be labeled with prepaid Yellow Yard Waste Tags. You can purchase these at various locations throughout Villa Park, including Ace Hardware, Pioneer Garden and Feed, and Village Hall.
If you would like to dispose of your yard waste in a bin you already own, complimentary stickers to mark containers designated for yard waste are available at Public Works.
Remember that free leaf collection operates this fall from October 23 to December 8. Residents can dispose an unlimited number of Kraft paper bags of leaves with no need for a yellow label. All other yard waste, however, will require a yellow label.
