Miscellaneous Waste Disposal Information
Charlie Smyth and others very kindly contributed this info.
The city only provides leaf collection in the Spring and Fall. Christmas trees in January. Brush needs to be taken to the Landscape Recycling site on East University (entrance at the east end of the park) or through a hauler.
Electronics such as TVs and appliances need to be recycled. There are e-waste recycling events on a regular basis.
General information about Recycling is on the city website at http://urbanaillinois.us/U-cycle — note the topics that appear in the left hand menu.
