Refuse Collection

The United City of Yorkville's refuse contractor is Advanced Disposal (formerly Veolia Environmental Services.)

Amount of Refuse Allowed

Under the city's refuse agreement with Advanced Disposal, each residence is allowed to put out:
  • 1 35, 65, or 95-gallon Advanced Disposal refuse cart (green)
  • 1 65-gallon recycling cart (blue)
  • 1 large household item (such as a couch, chair, or mattress) will be collected weekly without a prepaid sticker on the regular pick-up day only.

Refuse & Recycling Carts

Additional carts are provided by Advanced Disposal. Residents may request an additional 35-gallon, 65-gallon, or 95-gallon refuse cart at an additional cost of $5 per month billed directly to the residents by Advanced Disposal.

Additional Containers

Additional refuse containers may not exceed 35 gallons in size or 50 pounds in weight.

Discarded Carpeting

Carpeting is considered a bulk item; however, it must be cut and rolled in 4-foot lengths. Each roll must be tied and not weigh more than 50 pounds. Up to 4 rolls will be accepted as 1 bulk item.

Unacceptable Items

The following items will not be accepted during weekly collection:
  • Construction/demolition materials
  • Hazardous wastes (includes paints, oils, hot ash and flammable items)
  • Large automotive parts
  • Materials from floods, fires, or evictions
  • Tires
  • White goods (call for pick up options)

Prepaid Refuse Stickers

A $1 prepaid sticker is required for each bag or 32-gallon container outside the cart. Prepaid refuse stickers are sold at the following locations in Yorkville:
  • Ace Hardware - 9620 Route 34
  • Jewel-Osco - 234 Veterans Parkway
  • United City of Yorkville City Hall

Collection Times

All refuse should be placed out for collection by 6 a.m. on the designated collection day. Please note that Advanced Disposal has co-collect trucks that accommodate both refuse and recycling items. These trucks have separate compartments for these items and are not combining recycling items with refuse.
