The Bourbonnais Public Works Department & Bourbonnais Code Enforcement would like to remind all Bourbonnais residents of the ordinance regarding depositing leaves into the roadway, (Ordinance, Sec. 29-12) which reads as follows:
Sec. 29-12. Deposits on streets.
- (a) It shall be unlawful to deposit on any street any material which may be harmful to the pavement thereof, or any waste material, leaves, grass, or rubbish, or any glass, or articles which may cause injury to any person, animal or property.
(Code 1973, § 23-12)
Allied Waste, a Republic Services Company, will pick up your leaves in the following containers only:
- Brown paper bags which you can purchase at your local hardware stores. (When using brown paper bags, no yard waste sticker is required).
- Yard waste containers no larger than 35 gallons. You may rent them from Allied Waste by calling them at (815) 472-3332 or use your own 35 gallon containers; however, you must place a Yard Waste Sticker on your container. Yard Waste stickers can be picked up for FREE at the Village of Bourbonnais Offices, Bourbonnais Public Works Department or by calling Allied Waste.
