Village’s Refuse Hauler Changed on August 1, 2020
Effective August 1, 2020, the Village of La Grange has contracted Flood Brothers Disposal to be the new refuse, recycling and yard waste service provider for single and two-family households. The services will continue in a manner similar to the Republic Services program, but additional options will be available to residents at reduced pricing.
Residents can continue to use stickers purchased through Republic Services until the end of 2020.
For information regarding the new refuse program, please view Frequently Asked Questions.
The Village refuse collection program applies to single-family and two-family customers. Pick-up is once per week, and includes curbside collection of general refuse, recyclables, and seasonal yard waste on the following schedule:
- Addresses north of 47th Street on Mondays
- Addresses south of 47th Street on Thursdays
Please note, by ordinance, containers may be placed out for collection after 5:00 p.m. the day before the collection is scheduled and must be removed from the Village parkways no later than 7:00 p.m. on the day of collection.
View a copy of the Village’s Solid Waste and Recycling Program Brochure (PDF).
All multi-family properties are required to institute an on-site recycling program per Chapter 50.25 of the La Grange Code of Ordinances.
Refuse and recycling collection will be delayed by one day for the following holidays:
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
- New Year’s Day
Pay Per Container Charge / Sticker Program
Residents have the option of choosing to affix a sticker on each can or bag of waste or to subscribe to a two-wheeled cart option. For information, please view the Pay Per Container Charge. Residents use an 18 gallon recycling bin in conjunction with this program or can contract for a recycling cart with Flood Brothers Disposal. Recycling bins remain with the residence. Replacement bins are available at the Village Hall. For more information regarding recycling, please visit Recycling.
Two-wheeled Cart Program
Residents have the option of choosing to subscribe to a two-wheeled cart refuse and recycling container with several size options. Sizes for refuse and recycling carts include 95-gallon, 65-gallon and 35-gallon (senior rate). Depending on how much waste is disposed of each month, it may be more cost-effective to subscribe to the two-wheeled cart service. To subscribe, please call Flood Brothers Disposal at (630) 261-0400. For more information, please view the Toter / Refuse Cart Service.
Spring Clean-Up Program
The Village offers an annual Spring Clean-Up program as part of its refuse disposal program. Details regarding the program vary from year-to-year and are advertised on the Village’s website, Village newsletter, and media sources. Yard Waste is not included in the Spring Clean-Up program and some items such as hazardous materials, construction debris and the like are also not accepted. A complete list of unacceptable items is provided prior to each annual event.
Residents participating in the program are asked to affix the required number of stickers on their regular refuse can or other similar objects that will not be taken by scavengers prior to the arrival of the refuse disposal truck so that the stickers are not inadvertently lost.
Participation in the Spring Clean-Up program can encourage reuse and recycling initiatives as items are "picked" from the curb by individuals and recyclers typically the night before the event.
