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.

In August of 2018 several residents approached the City requesting a change to City Code Section 7-1-5 which requires single family detached houses to keep refuse, recyclable, and compostable materials in containers. Further, the code requires that the containers are not to be stored between the house and the street except on pick-up days. The residents making the request stated that since they live in raised-ranch style homes they cannot place their containers on their side yard due to the property slope. Based on these requests, the Mayor and City Council passed an ordinance revision March 4, 2019 that allows the storage of trash enclosures within the front of the home, subject to certain requirements. The ordinance revision allows single family homes to store trash containers or totes within the front of a home, provided that a specified trash enclosure is utilized.  (https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/darienil/latest/overview – 7-1-5(B) ).
The enclosures are manufactured by Suncast Corporation and the Model numbers are BMS4700 and BMS3400.  The product is available through Home Depot, Pro Desk Services, at a discounted price for Darien residents Model No-BMS3400 $224.10 + Tax or Model No-BMS4700 $349.00 + Tax. The units are also available through other retailer outlets and will require assembly. Additional information for the enclosure may be found at www.suncast.com/bms3400.html or www.suncast.com/bms4700.html.  Residents can also view the BMS4700 container on display at City Hall.

Holiday Schedule

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 $3.80 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 35, 65 or 95 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 until the second full week of December.

Free Leaf Collection

Leaves are collected for free beginning in October thru the second full working week in December. 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.
