The City is under a new waste collection and hauling contract, which provides a decrease in waste hauling rates for 2018.  After a thorough bidding and review process, City Council approved a new 5-year contract with Republic Services of Melrose Park.  An additional benefit in continuing with Republic Services is there will NOT be a Citywide change out of toters or a change in collection days.  The new contract maintains the same services with a few additional options listed below:  


  • Spring clean up days remains  
  • Free leaf pick up for two cycles in the Fall remains  
  • New! 35-gallon toter option for waste only.  (Details will be made available in the next few months.)  
  • New! organic (food scrap) recycling.  (Details will be made available in the next few months.)  
  • New! Recycling options for electronic and medical sharps for a fee.  


The new rates are as follows:  

95-Gallon Toter                                                                        $22.29/month  

65-Gallon Toter                                                                        $17.20/month  

35-Gallon Toter                                                                        $16.50/month
