Garbage and recycling service will be one day late for Joliet residents Wednesday through Friday during the week of December, 30, 2019 due to the New Year’s Day holiday. Customers with regularly scheduled Monday and Tuesday service will not be impacted by this change. The regular schedule will resume January 6, 2020. Please note that yard waste pickup has been suspended until spring 2020.

  • Set out in one piece if under five feet in length.
  • Cut the tree in half if it is longer than five feet.
  • Set the tree at your usual pickup site on your regular pickup day.
