Refuse & Recycling
Solid Waste & Recycling Program
Republic Services (Formerly Allied Waste)
Refuse Pickup Days
Starting May 3, 2016 pickup days for resident refuse will be on Tuesdays. The Village will no longer have two separate pickup days within the Village. By having one pickup day the Village saves 2% on the contract which is passed on to the residents, so rates did not increase in July of 2016 as previously scheduled.
Refuse in the Village is contracted for with Republic Services. Republic Services directly bills for these services on a quarterly. The rates are as follows:
|Service||Rates for July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018
|95 Gallon Weekly Service
|Weekly Service - Seniors
|Back Door Can Service
The normal service schedule may be affected by the following holidays:
- New Year's Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
The current contract allows for one bulk item per week to be put out with your garbage cans. Items too big for a 35-gallon bag are considered Bulk items. Additional Bulk items need a refuse sticker.
Yard waste pickup starts in April of every year and ends in December. Yard waste should be placed in a 35-gallon container or Kraft paper yard waste bag not weighing more than 50 pounds with a yard waste sticker. It must be marked as "Yard Waste." Bundles of sticks must not exceed 2 feet in diameter or 4 feet in length. A yard waste sticker must be attached to each bundle. Yard waste stickers may be purchased from Village Hall, Jewel-Osco and the Clarendon Hills Hardware store.
Leaf Pick Up
Starting October 1st through the end of November, leaf pick-up in appropriate yard waste bags will be picked up without any stickers. 2017 free leaf only pickup has been extended to Tuesday, December 5th.
Electronics are not allowed in Illinois Landfills. Go to the County recycling page for an up-to-date list on electronics recycling programs.
Hazardous Waste is handled region-wide by the City of Naperville. Click here for information on their program.
No longer is there a set day for additional refuse. If you have additional refuse that does not fit into your refuse cart, it may be placed into 35-gallon or less bags and collected as part of the standard pickup without a refuse sticker. Items too big for a 35-gallon bag are considered Bulk items. Bulk items can be placed by the curb weekly. Residents are limited to one bulk item per week. Additional bulk items would need a refuse sticker.
