Reminder About Recycling Containers

Recycling Symbol

The City of Warrenville is working with Waste Management to improve service and assist in keeping neighborhoods clean. For Waste Management to service recycling properly, it 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 or paper bags are not acceptable recycling containers. Weather and rodents can break down cardboard/paper 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. Items that can be recycled are clean bottles, cans, jars, plastics numbers 1 thru 5, paper, and cardboard. Cardboard boxes must be flattened and cut down to no larger than 3' x 3'.
