Village of Wauconda residents that would like to participate in the 2020 Brush Pick up Program should have brush placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on Monday, May 18th. The contractor will pick-up brush throughout the corporate limits of the Village of Wauconda, however once they have completed the pick-up on your street, they will not return.

Residents are asked to rake the leaves within five feet of the curb by Monday morning, for pick up by Waste Management each week. Leaves should not be bagged and should not be placed in the gutter or street.
