On December 17, 2012, the City of Elmhurst entered into a new five (5) year agreement with our current contractor, Republic Services (Allied Waste) to continue providing refuse and recycling services to residential customers. The new two-cart program simplifies recycling and refuse collection. The new program also reduces the rate cost to the resident: 65 Gallon $15.16 (current rate) to $14.93 (new rate) and 95 Gallon $21.95 (current rate) to $20.70 (new rate). Highlights and information regarding the new contract and program service levels with Republic Services (Allied Waste), including cart selection information are available by clicking here.
(If you are currently receiving the standard 33 gallon refuse container service, there is no need to apply for any change to your service. You will be supplied with the 65 gallon refuse container and billed for the standard refuse service beginning April 1, 2013.)
