Map of Darien Garbage Collection

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) ).
