Coming Soon: Recycling Carts

Sample type of 35-gallon recycling cartThe Village and Republic Services are preparing to roll out a new recycling cart program. This program is a service enhancement to the new contract with Republic Services, which takes effect on April 1, 2011.  The program will be rolled out in two phases.

Phase I 

Recycling carts are first being introduced to those customers who currently subscribe to Republic's cart rental service.  These customers will receive a postcard from Republic Services the week of February 14, 2011, informing them that a recycling cart of similar size to their garbage cart will be delivered to them between March 7 and March 18, 2011.  There is no additional charge to customers for the recycling cart. 

Phase II

After initial delivery to existing cart rental customers, Republic Services may send information to Downers Grove residents encouraging them to consider cart rental service. Please note that  RECYCLING CARTS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE TO CART RENTAL CUSTOMERS

Residents that wish to take advantage of the ease and convenience of services offered with cart rental may contact Republic Services at (630) 964-3232.
