Garbage Holidays

Our garbage collectors have six holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. On the weeks that this occurs, garbage collection will be pushed back one day from the holiday.

Bulk Items

Bulk items are large items that are not included in normal garbage pick-up. Examples of bulk items are sofas, loveseats, chairs, tables, and microwaves. Two stickers must be affixed to each bulk item for it to be removed on your normal garbage pick-up day.

White Goods

White goods include refrigerators, ranges, stoves, freezers, air conditioners, water heaters, another other domestic large appliances. Because these need to be disassembled by hand because of environmentally harmful materials, five stickers are required to be affixed before they will be removed on your regular garbage pick-up day.


Recycling is free when put in recycling bins that can be purchased at City Hall for $8.00. Please help keep our neighborhoods clean by placing heavy recyclables on top, which keeps the lighter items from blowing out of the bins and into our yards. The following are examples of acceptable and unacceptable recycling items:

DuPage County 2013 Recycling Guide

New Illinois Law Bans Electronics from Your Trash

Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Illinois law will make it illegal for you to throw your electronics in the garbage. This law seeks to prevent dangerous substances contained in electronics from infiltrating our water supply and soil when they end up in landfills. For places you may recycle electronics in DuPage county please visit their website.

Medication Drop-Offs:

Traces of prescription and over the counter medications are now showing up in treated water. Many people are unaware of that disposing of unwanted medication down a drain can result in traces being found in their water supply and land. This is a growing concern and alternative measures to help people get rid of their unwanted medications are being provided. The DuPage County Health Department and a dozen communities have established a secure method to collect and safely destroy unwanted drugs.

Last month, the County established the RxBox Program. Disposal containers were set up at the DuPage Sherriff’s Office and other local police departments. When the communities have collected enough materials, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) picks up and incinerates it in a safe way. There is no charge to drop off any pharmaceutical at any of the sites.
