Residential Trash Service

We make trash removal easy, efficient, and safe. The only thing you have to remember is when to take your trash to the curb. We utilize technology, like automated collection, to increase the efficiency of each pickup. Tailoring routes ensures timely service and minimizes wear and tear on streets.

For information on pick up days, billing schedules, garbage carts, and special “hard to handle” items, like appliances, check your specific town page.

Environmental Responsibility

Being a good steward of the environment has always been intrinsic to the family values our company was founded on. The most outward sign of that commitment is our state-of-the-art recycling facility.

Less obvious, but just as important, are the types of vehicles we use to increase efficiency and our use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), a clean burning fuel. Our efforts to reduce emissions have earned various awards, including an Illinois Green Fleet Member designation. Our CNG station in Homewood , Illinois, will be  for semi-public use.

Curbside Residential Tips

  • Place all material at the curb the night before your pickup day or by 6 a.m. on your pickup day.
  • Large bulk items will be picked weekly. See your town page for details.
  • Place garbage in bags before placing in cans or carts to reduce odor and contain loose items.
  • Part of a homeowners association? Contact your association or management company with initial requests for change in service levels.
