To establish new electric service, residents must contact Commonwealth Edison at 800-334-7661.
In 2012 Darien voters authorized the City to negotiate electric supply rates on the behalf of its residents. We are pleased to announce that Constellation has been selected as our new supplier. This includes a 26-month program with a fixed price of 6.90¢ per kwh for the first year, and 6.44¢ per kwh the second year. This rate is lower than the city's current program of 7.753 per kwh, which expires July 2015.
- Current residents: Unless you choose to opt out no further action was necessary. You will be automatically enrolled with Constellation. Any resident desiring to move back to ComEd should contact Constellation at 855-836-6594. Have your account number when you place the call.
- New residents: If you wish to join the program you must first establish electric service with ComEd, and then you may contact Constellation and provide them with your new ComEd account number and address to receive electric supply through the City’s program. ComEd does all billing, delivery and maintenance of electric lines.
Residents can find alternative priced rates from other suppliers at www.PlugInIllinois.org. Residents with questions can call the City of Darien’s energy consultant, NIMEC, at 1-800-727-382.

The solid waste management program for the City of Darien is a volume based sticker program for the disposal of refuse and yard waste. The City selected this type of program in 1990 to allow homeowners to have control over their solid waste disposal. The program provides an economic incentive to recycle and allows us to participate in a positive way to do our part in protecting the environment. Waste collection/hauling services are provided by Advanced Disposal Services.
New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Wherever the Holiday falls, pickup will be ONE day later – Fridays will be picked up on Saturday.
Stickers cost $3.63 each and may be used to dispose of both refuse and yard waste. Residents may choose to affix a sticker to the handle of a 32/33 gallon (maximum capacity allowed) garbage can, or affix sticker to each 32/33 gallon bag of garbage.
As an alternative to the volume based program, Advanced Disposal offers 64 or 96 gallon wheeled totes for customers to lease/rent (totes do not require stickers). Advanced Disposal bills directly to the homeowner. Refuse and yard waste may not be combined within a tote container.
The program also offers a full-scale recycling service on the same day as refuse and yardwaste collection. Recycling bins may be purchased directly from Advanced Disposal by calling first to place an order and the bin will be delivered on the next regular collection day. Bins may also be purchased at Darien City Hall Bins should be clearly marked with the address number and street name for identification purposes.
For more information about the sticker program, tote rental, collection days, and large/bulk or appliances item disposal, please contact Advanced Disposal at 708-409-9700.
Yard wastes must be disposed of in either 2-ply kraft paper yard bags (no plastic bags may be used), or 33 gallon trash container. If using a trash container it MUST have a yard waste identification label attached to the front. These labels are available at Darien City Hall.
Yardwaste pickup begins April 1st and ends November 30th of every year.
Free Leaf Collection
Leaves are collected for free beginning in October thru the last full working week in November. Leaves ONLY may be placed in paper yardwaste collection bags or trash cans marked with a yard waste I.D. label. Regular yardwaste must still be tagged with a refuse sticker.
Free Branch Pickup
The City of Darien is pleased to be able to offer free bi-monthly branch pickup spring thru fall for all residents. Branches should be stacked neatly by the curb on the Sunday before the pickup week. The chipper can accept branches up to 6” in diameter. Please do not tie the branches or put it in garbage cans. All other yard waste such as grass clippings and flowers should be disposed of through our yard waste program with Advanced Disposal.
All branch needs to be out by no later than the Sunday night prior to the designated pick up week. The chipping crew can make only one pass and may complete your street as soon as Monday morning.
Residents who are unable to put their branches out prior to the scheduled week can take it to the Municipal Services Facility, 1041 S. Frontage Road, and place it in the brush dumpster.
For current pickup dates and more information please contact Municipal Services at 630-353-8105.
