Garbage Guidelines


Garbage must be placed inside of the gray City of Elgin refuse cart with the lid closed in order to be collected. Additional items that are stacked above, on top of, or placed along side of the 64-gallon cart will require a garbage sticker for collection.


Special Collections (Large Clean-Up’s, Move-Out’s, Remodeling, etc.) 

For larger volumes of waste, residents can contact Waste Management directly to arrange for a special collection or to order a dumpster. For more details, contact Waste Management customer service at 1-800-796-9696.
