Yard Waste Collection

Under state law, yard waste and grass clippings cannot go in the landfill.  Residents who place any yard waste in their garbage cart will find a refuse violation tag.  You may dispose of grass clippings and yard waste at the Cudahy Drop-Off/Recycling Center (5631 South Pennsylvania Avenue) any time it is open.

Drop-Off Site Changes -- PLEASE READ!


Holiday Tree Disposal -

The Cudahy DPW will be collecting Christmas trees placed by the curb for a two-week period beginning Monday January 7th, 2013 thru January 18th, 2013. Please make sure the tree is visible to our crews by digging it out of snow banks. Also remove lights, tinsel and other items from the tree. Holiday trees may be dropped off at the City's Drop Off Center when it's open to the public.
