Bulk trash must meet the following guidelines:

  • Be less than six cubic yards per household. Six cubic yards is roughly equivalent to two couches or four chairs or one mattress and box spring, OR 25 medium garbage bags. Quantities that exceed six cubic yards will be tagged for a special pick-up and a fee will be assessed.
  • Be placed out in an orderly fashion, i.e. bagged, contained or bundled, no loose garbage. Crews cannot go on private property. Absolutely no hazardous materials will be collected, including batteries, gas, oil, asbestos, medical wastes, paint, etc.
  • Glass should be broken up, boxed, taped and labeled as glass.
  • Must be placed on the alley line or parkway. Crews will not remove items from private property.
  • Absolutely no construction material will be picked up.
  • No tires or appliances will be picked up. Please call 311 or (847) 448-4311 to arrange for the free removal of these items.
  • Crews will only remove bulk items; no garbage carts will be emptied.
