Our garbage collectors have six holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial
Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. On the
weeks that this occurs, garbage collection will be pushed back one day
from the holiday.
Bulk items are large items that are not included in normal garbage
pick-up. Examples of bulk items are sofas, loveseats, chairs, tables,
and microwaves. Two stickers must be affixed to each bulk item for it to
be removed on your normal garbage pick-up day.
White goods include refrigerators, ranges, stoves, freezers, air
conditioners, water heaters, another other domestic large appliances.
Because these need to be disassembled by hand because of environmentally
harmful materials, five stickers are required to be affixed before they
will be removed on your regular garbage pick-up day.
Recycling is free when put in recycling bins that can be
purchased at City Hall for $8.00. Please help keep our neighborhoods
clean by placing heavy recyclables on top, which keeps the lighter items
from blowing out of the bins and into our yards. The following are
examples of acceptable and unacceptable recycling items:
Items Not Accepted
Steel Cans & Tins
Glass Bottles & Jars
Detergent & Fabric Softener Containers
Items contaminated with food
Milk & Juice Jugs
*Plastic Grocery Bags
*Plastic grocery bags can be recycled in many grocery stores. Jewel
will accept these grocery bags back for recycling.

Traces of prescription and over the counter medications are now
showing up in treated water. Many people are unaware of that disposing
of unwanted medication down a drain can result in traces being found in
their water supply and land. This is a growing concern and alternative
measures to help people get rid of their unwanted medications are being
provided. The DuPage County Health Department and a dozen communities
have established a secure method to collect and safely destroy unwanted
Last month, the County established the RxBox Program. Disposal
containers were set up at the DuPage Sherriff’s Office and other local
police departments. When the communities have collected enough
materials, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) picks up and
incinerates it in a safe way. There is no charge to drop off any
pharmaceutical at any of the sites.
