Furniture, appliances, carpet (rolled and secured not larger than four feet in length and two feet in diameter), mattresses, etc., are considered bulk items and will be collected separately from regular refuse.
Please affix two refuse stickers to each bulk item set out for collection that is over 75 lbs. Items under 75 lbs. are picked up at no charge. Bulk items are picked up on the same day as all other solid waste.
Large Quantities of Extra Trash
For large quantities of extra trash where a dumpster may be required, the resident should contact any one of the Village's licensed haulers. For a listing of contractors, call Village Hall at (708) 579-2300.
Back Door Collection
This optional service is available at an annual cost. Call Flood Brothers at (630) 261-0400 to establish this service.
Two-wheeled Cart Service
As an alternative to purchasing stickers, residents can subscribe to a two-wheeled cart service for refuse collection, recycling and yard waste. The two wheeled refuse carts come in various size options including a 95-gallon capacity, 65-gallon capacity and 35 gallon capacity. Recycling carts are also available in 95, 65 or 35 gallon options. Yard Waste / Food Scrap carts are available in 65 and 95 gallon options.
Residents choosing to remain on the sticker program can also subscribe to a monthly recycling cart option in 35 or 65 gallon sizes.
The two-wheeled carts are completely enclosed with an attached lid to prevent odor problems and keep unwanted pests out of your trash. The cart service is a clean and convenient way to store and dispose of garbage. Material outside the cart still requires refuse stickers.
Please contact Flood Brothers to subscribe to the two-wheeled cart service at (630) 261-0400.
Special pick-ups, such as for lumber or other construction materials, can be scheduled with the hauler, Flood Brothers, by calling (630) 261-0400.
