Solid Waste Removal, Recycling, Yard Waste
Solid Waste, Recycling & Yard Waste Pickup
The City of Warrenville is responsible for residential solid waste removal. This service is contracted out for a period of five years, effective May 1, 2016; stickers will increase in cost every May 1st. The current refuse contractor is Waste Management, who can be contacted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at (800) 796-9696. All refuse, yard waste, and recycling must be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the pickup date. Refuse, yard waste, or recycling put out late will not be picked up. Landscape waste collection runs from April 1 to November 30.

If a holiday falls on a weekday and the regularly scheduled pickup is on or after the holiday, pickup will be delayed by one day. If a holiday falls on a weekend but is observed on a weekday, pickup will be delayed by one day.  Friday pickups will be on Saturday. Collection services will not take place on January 1, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, December 25. Christmas trees will be picked up the first two weeks following the holiday.

Recycling needs to be contained in plastic recycling bins or containers 18 gallons in size or less, or cans that are 34 gallons in size or less labeled “recycle.” "Recycle" labels are available at City Hall for free. Recycling must weigh less than 50 pounds or be in recycling carts with wheels (toters). Recycling carts of 64 gallons can be rented from Waste Management for $3.00 per month; simply call (800) 796-9696. Cardboard boxes are not acceptable recycling containers. Weather and rodents can break down cardboard and spread debris along the street. Anyone using receptacles that do not meet the requirements will not be serviced.

All recycling material must be clean; it cannot be contaminated with food items, trash, or yard waste. Contaminated items will not be picked up. Click here for the most common recycle contaminants.  Plastic bags (garbage bags, shopping bags, zip-lock bags, bread bags, newspaper bags, etc.) and plastic film (shrink-wrap, plastic wrap around cases of water bottles, packing pillows, bubble wrap, flexible plastic food packaging, etc.) are excluded from the recycling program. Recycle all bottles, cans, paper and cardboard. Click here for an easy guide to find out if it is recyclable and tips for disposal. More information on recycling options can be found on the Environmental Advisory Commission's recycling page.

Remember to make sure recycling is not contaminated. Residents are recycling, but not always correctly. Even with the best of intentions, sometimes items get placed in recycling bins erroneously. As a result, these materials end up in landfills, rather than being converted into reusable items. The wrong materials can also jam up the works at recycling facilities. Please take a moment to view this video that provides three simple recycling tips that can make a big difference today and every day.
