City of Cherokee schedules Fall yard waste pickup dates
Yard waste in Cherokee will be picked up by Sanitary Services on your regular recyclable service day on the following dates:
West side of town (also Rock Island & Parkview Additions) will be Thursdays, Sept. 23, Oct. 14 and Nov. 4.
East side of town will be Friday, Sept. 24, Oct. 15 and Nov. 5.
Important: yard waste will be picked up at your normal pickup location but must be kept separate from your recyclables that are also picked up on those dates.
Yard waste will be picked up only if it is in paper sacks, boxes, or garbage cans. Plastic bags will not be picked up.
Branches must be tied in bundles and in lengths not to exceed four feet. Yard waste can also be bagged or bundled and taken to the Sanitary Landfill yourself at no charge when the Landfill is open.
Note: there is no open burning season of yard waste in the Cherokee City limits.
