Manteno Garbage Service

We may not have been sponsoring Wildcats football as long as we’ve been serving the residents of Manteno, Illinois, but we have had that winning streak of service since 1968. And we are grateful to our customers!

Homewood Disposal, also known as Star Disposal in Manteno, provides household garbage, yard waste, and recycling services. We also offer a full line of rental dumpsters for temporary cleanup projects.

other disposal hazardWe work hard to offer you unmatched disposal service. However, some items you need to dispose of can’t be accepted for various reasons, such as landfill restrictions and government regulation. Currently, these “hard to handle items” cannot be accepted: electronics, hazardous material, propane tanks, and batteries. We do offer alternative removal options for these items.

Helpful Hints

CNG truck
  • Please have all material at the curb by 6am on your pickup day. Putting garbage out the night before helps.
  • Once a week, at no additional cost, we will gladly pickup one large bulk item. Items can be placed at the curb on your regular pickup day. Our “Hard to Handle Material” pages describe what qualifies as a bulk item.
  • Please be sure to place your garbage in bags before you put it in your cans or carts. This helps prevent materials from blowing out of the can and also reduces odor in your container.
All carts are owned by Homewood/Star Disposal. Serial numbers have been recorded and designated to each address. In the event you move out of the home, the cart must remain at the original address. Please do not put your address on your cart.
