City of Mt. Vernon waiving collection fees for yard waste

MT. VERNON, IL — Due to the suspension of the collection of yard waste by Republic Services for the months of July and August 2021, the City of Mt. Vernon will be waiving the collection fees for these months for all Residents under this contract. You will see a reduction of $2.50 for each of these months applied to the August and September water bills.

Since the City has opted to waive the collection of these fees, there will no longer be a dumpster at the Armory for the purpose of dumping yard waste. Please do not take any yard waste, or other trash or junk to
the dumpster at this location.
The City Council has passed an emergency resolution allowing the burning of yard waste each weekend in July and August 2021.

If you have any questions regarding this statement, please call the Water Billing office at 6182426819.
