Residents with the 65-gallon or 95-gallon cart can place additional garbage and recycling out in a separate container (garbage should be sealed in bags) not to exceed 50 pounds each, which can be collected by one person. There is no additional cost for the excess garbage and recycling.
This does not apply to the senior discounted 35-gallon cart program.

The City’s contract with Waste Management expired on April 30, 2021. In December 2020, the City issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) on residential waste and recycling service to commence on May 1, 2021. The RFP requested that each bidder submit an option to continue the sticker-based program the City currently uses as well as a cart-based service option. The City received responses from four companies: Flood Brothers, Groot, Lakeshore Recycling Systems, and Waste Management. However, none of the companies proposed a strictly pay-as-you-throw sticker program. Three of the four companies offered a sticker program with a flat monthly fee on top of the sticker pricing. Therefore, a cart-based service through Groot was selected as the most cost-effective option over the course of the five year contract.
Seniors 65 and over qualify for a 35-gallon garbage cart at a reduced senior rate. The recycling cart will still be 65 gallons. To request enrollment in the senior discounted program, contact Groot at Warrenville@groot.com and provide your name, address, phone number, and proof of age. You may also contact Groot by phone at 630-892-9294.
