To arrange for this wheeled cart service, call Advanced Disposal at (630) 587-8282 or visit their website.

Recycling

Green-recycling bins will be distributed by Advanced Disposal for recycling and are to be placed at the curb to serve as a visual signal to the collection crew that you have recyclables for pick-up.  The first bin will be furnished at no charge.  Additional bins are available at $10.00 each, or you may rent the 64 gallon recycling cart, by calling Advanced Disposal at (630) 587-8282 (old blue recycling bins may also be used).

    Landscape/Yardwaste

    Collection is seasonal and occurs from April 1st through December 15th, and again, the first three (3) pick-ups in January for the collection of Christmas Trees.

    Landscape/yardwaste includes: grass clippings, leaves, weeds, shrubbery, brush, small branches and other material accumulated as a result of the care of lawns, shrubbery and trees.  Disposal of landscape/yardwaste must be in either brown Kraft paper bags available for purchase at local stores, or by designating a regular trash can to be used solely for Yardwaste.  This is accomplished by purchasing a single Yardwaste sticker for $1.00 at Village Hall.  This sticker is to act as a visual signal to the crew that you have Yardwaste for pick-up.  Plastic "biodegradable" bags are not accepted.

    Household furnishings

    One item per week will be picked up on regular collection days.  There will be no additional charge for this service.

    Appliances (White Goods)

    Including but not limited to stoves, ovens, washing machines, dryers, air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, water softeners, water heaters, microwave ovens, trash compactors and dishwashers.  For safety reasons please remove all doors prior to placing at the curb.  There is a $25.00 charge per item for the collection of these appliances.  Please call Advanced Disposal at (630) 587-8282 to arrange for a pick up.

    Construction/Remodeling Debris

    Two yards collected weekly at no additional charge.  Includes items such as lumber, drywall, paneling, carpeting, rocks, dirt, concrete, sod, bricks and branches greater the 6" in diameter.  These materials must be placed in bags or boxes not to exceed 4 feet in length and 50 pounds in weight.  Single items such as toilets, sinks, vanities, garage doors, swing sets, and kitchen cabinets must be disassembled and each portion or item cannot exceed 50 pounds in weight.  There will be an additional charge of $7.50 (minimum charge of 2 cubic yards) per cubic yard, payable prior to service for quantities of construction/remodeling debris in excess of two (2) cubic yards.

    Electronic (E-Waste) Recycling

    Electronics manufacturers are responsible for the cost of recycling millions of pounds of residential electronic waste (e-waste) in Illinois every year.  Under this Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) Residential E-Waste Program, you may have options for safely getting rid of your old residential computers, monitors, laptops, televisions, and printers.  Please note old electronic equipment being discarded from a business is not covered by this program.

    Here's how the program works. The Illinois EPA has compiled a list of e-waste collectors, whom you may contact regarding recycling either at no charge to you, or, if there is a fee, in exchange for a dollar-for-dollar coupon you can use to reduce the cost of new equipment.  The Illinois EPA has this list sorted, alphabetically by county, and it includes site addresses and phone numbers.  The Illinois EPA recommends that you call the collection site nearest you for its schedule, as well as the types of old electronics the site will accept. Some sites will accept not only your computers, monitors, TVs, and printers, but also items like keyboards, mice, DVD players, and other electronics.

    For more information and a complete list of participating manufacturers and sites, please see the E-Waste Recycling Program on the Illinois EPA website

    Household Hazardous Waste

    Wondering what to do with old lawn, garden and pool chemicals, motor oil, and household cleaners?  These items cannot be discarded in your regular waste collection because they are considered hazardous.  They can contaminate our water supply.

    One Day Household Hazardous Waste collections sponsored by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and local governments provide opportunities for the safe disposal of household hazardous waste.  Check their website for dates and locations at www.epa.state.il.us.

    The following long-term facilities are available for disposal of household hazardous waste.  Please note that neither facility will accept latex paint.  Phone ahead to determine availability and open hours:
