Scavenger service is provided exclusively by Allied Waste Services
. Residential refuse will be picked up once a week at the curb. The cost of garbage removal is added to your water/sewer bill. Starting December 1, 2011, Allied will provide all homeowners with a 96 gallon toter for trash pick-up (free of charge
). Smaller toters are available upon request by calling Allied directly. Additional toters will be provided if necessary. Toters for yard waste will also be available upon request (free of charge
). Contact Allied at (708) 385-8252 for details. The ownership, delivery and the maintenance/replacement of the toters will be the responsibility of Allied. By ordinance, no trash containers may be placed out for collection prior to 7:00 p.m. the evening prior to your designated pick-up day, and must be out prior to 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled day of collection. Bulky items (furniture, appliance, etc.) will be picked up at no extra charge, although Allied does request a courtesy call when these items will be disposed of. They will pick up one large item per week and can be reached at (708) 385-8252 (ask for Residential Dispatch). If disposing of carpet, they ask it be cut into no longer than 4' sections, rolled and bound. Please remember when disposing of refrigerators or freezers to remove the doors as a precautionary measure.
