Plainfield Spring Cleanup Scheduled for Week of April 8

Yard Waste Collection Resumes in April

The Village of Plainfield and Waste Management will be sponsoring Spring Cleanup for Village residents during the week of April 8, 2024. Residents can place household refuse, bulk items (i.e., chairs, couches, and mattresses wrapped in plastic), and white goods (i.e., refrigerators, washers, dryers, and water heaters) at the curb on their regular pickup day.

Please have all materials at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day. All items placed at the curb for collection must be normal residential refuse and packaged properly.
