*Advanced Disposal Recycling Information

(*formerly Veolia Environmental Services)

 

As a part of their recycling program Advanced Disposal provides residences within the United City of Yorkville city limits with one, navy blue, 65-gallon cart for recycling. Recycling carts should be placed out for collection by 6:00 a.m. on the designated collection day. Please note that additional recycling may be placed next to the cart in standard 18-gallon recycling bins. There is no charge for extra recycling. Please do not bag recyclables.

Advanced Disposal uses special trucks to collect both trash and recyclables. These co-collect trucks contain two compartments—one for recycling and one for trash. When these trucks are used, Advanced Disposal has the ability to separate the items as part of their pick up procedure.

 

Who can I contact if I have a question?

Questions can be directed to Advanced Disposal Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 630.587.8282 or at www.AdvancedDisposal.com.
