City Fall Yard Waste Days
Fall yard waste in Cherokee will be picked up by Sanitary Services on the west side of town and Rock Island and Parkview Additions on Thursdays Oct. 19, and Nov. 16.
Fall pick-up for the east side of town is scheduled for Fridays Oct. 20, and Nov. 17.
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 4 feet.
Yard waste can also be taken to the sanitary landfill yourself at no charge during open hours, or to the city’s yard waste site at the south end of South Sioux Street.
Note: There is no open burning season of yard waste in city limits.
