Landscape Waste Collection Program 

Mackinaw’s Curbside Yard Waste Collection Program

The Village offers a free landscape waste collection program.  All yard waste including tree trimmings, landscape waste and leaves may be collected in 30 gallon, double sided, paper landscape bags only.  This program runs March through November. 

The Village will operate a landscape waste collection program commonly known as a “bag program” because bags are used for the disposal of your landscape waste.  Residents of Mackinaw will purchase paper landscape waste bags.  Residents place their landscape waste in these bags and set them out for collection. You will receive no bill for the service.  It is free-of-charge for Village residents only, sorry this does not include Heritage Lake residents. 

The curbside landscape waste collection program runs from March  to November, each year.  Landscape waste includes any and all accumulations of grass, leaves, branches, shrubs, vines, trees and other similar items generated by the maintenance of lawns and gardens. 

Collection Days and Time

Your landscape waste must be placed out at the curb by 6 AM on the day it is to be collected.  Pick-up will occur on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. 

Holiday collection schedule – In the event that your normal collection day falls on a major holiday (Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day etc.), your collection will be delayed by one day, following that holiday.

Containers and Preparation

Landscape Waste Container & Preparation – Mackinaw landscape waste bags must be 30-gallon, double-sided, paper bags, specially designed to hold landscape waste.  The landscape waste bags are sold at the Municipal Building, Mackinaw I.G.A. and other retail stores.  All landscape waste placed out for collection must be inside a landscape waste bag.  NO boxes, plastic bags, nor loose material will be picked up.  There can be NO garbage present in landscape waste bags set out for collection.  If garbage is present in the landscape bags, the bags will not be collected.
