Winnetka’s annual Spring Clean-Up week will be held the week of April 17 - 20. Scheduled pickups are:
- Monday, April 17: north of Tower Road
- Tuesday, April 18: Tower Road to Pine Street
- Wednesday, April 19: Pine Street to Willow Road
- Thursday, April 20: south of Willow Road
The Village’s recycling contractor, Lakeshore Recycling Systems, will remove from the parkway anything that two people can reasonably lift into a truck. Electronics, yard waste, dirt, stone, logs, construction materials/debris, batteries, paint, and other liquids will not be picked up. To minimize litter, all items should be placed on residential parkways no earlier than the evening before the scheduled pickup. There will be no call-backs if materials are not on the parkway by 7 AM on the day of your scheduled pickup.
This is an excellent opportunity to clean out your attic, basement, or garage. Residents are encouraged to recycle items such as cardboard boxes, Styrofoam and plastic bags instead of disposing of them during Spring Clean-Up. If you have questions, please call the Public Works Department at 847-716-3568 Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 4 PM.
