Garbage & Recycling

Collection Information

Dual Collection is "Green"

The Roy Strom Company’s dual collection system allows it to collect refuse and recycling from Village residences in one pass with one truck.  The truck body is divided into two completely separate collection chambers.  The materials (refuse and recyclables) are not commingled.  Refuse is placed on one side of the collection hopper - recyclables on the other.  The refuse and recyclables are then pulled into separate storage / transport chambers.


  • The number of large truck passes needed to collect refuse / recyclables on community streets is reduced by 50%
  • Fewer trucks and new emission standard chassis reduce GHG emissions released in Village residential environments
  • Fewer large trucks operate on Village streets. This will:
    • Reduce damage to Village streets and utilities
    • Enhance traffic safety
    • Reduce noise pollution in residential neighborhoods

Finally, the service efficiency (fewer trucks) reduces the impact skyrocketing fuel costs will have on monthly service rates. The Roy Strom Company has effectively utilized the system for over a decade.

Household Refuse Program

This convenient curbside service program allows residents to set out an unlimited amount of household refuse, recyclables, and yard waste as described below one time per week on their regularly scheduled collection day except on New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.  Should a holiday fall on a collection day, collection will be moved forward for all residents.  For example, if the holiday is on Tuesday, collection will be on Wednesday; Wednesday’s collection will be on Thursday, and so forth.

Household refuse is collected from all single, duplex, and triplex residential properties within the Village. Refuse must be placed at the curb by 6 AM in 35 gallon (max) rigid containers with handles or 32 gallon (max) plastic garbage bags, total weight of each container / plastic bag set out is not to exceed 50 lbs.


Carpeting must be set out rolled. Each roll must not exceed 4 feet in length, nor be more than 2 feet in diameter, be taped or tied, and weigh no more than 45 pounds each. Carpeting is limited to 150 pounds per pickup, which is equivalent to roughly 5 rolls of carpeting (see "Household Remodeling Debris"). If you have additional carpeting, please contact Roy Strom for an extra pickup. 

Large Items

One large regular household item such as a bicycle, chair, grill, mattress, table, etc., may be set out each week as part of the service. Anything additional requires Roy Strom be called to schedule a special pick up (furniture, some appliances - see "white goods."). Residents are asked to wrap mattresses and box springs for health reasons. Covers can be purchased at local retail outlets such as Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, or storage facilities. 

Large Household Appliances

Examples of a large household item include dishwasher, clothes dryer, furnace, hot water tank, stove, and washing machine. All large household appliances require Roy Strom be called to schedule a special pick up. To arrange for a special pick up call: (844) 633-3577.. There is a fee of $30 per appliance payable before pickup.

White Goods

"White goods" are appliances which contain CFC or HCFC refrigerant gas, PCB capacitors, mercury switches, or other hazardous components (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc., are examples).  Do not place these items at the curb until you call Roy Strom to schedule a "special pick up".  To arrange for the pick up of a "white good" item call: (844) 633-3577. There is a fee per item of $36 payable before pickup.

Vehicles & Vehicle Parts 

Goodwill accepts most vehicles for donation, whether or not they are in working order. Get more information on Goodwill car donation here. Large vehicle parts will not be collected as household trash (for example: wheels, engine blocks, exhaust systems, fenders, bumpers, doors, etc.).


Due to IEPA regulations, tires cannot be disposed of in Illinois landfills. There is a $5.15 disposal fee per tire payable prior to pickup. To arrange for the pick up of a tire(s) call: (844) 633-3577. 

Household Remodeling Debris

Residents are allowed to set out up to three cans or bundles of debris from projects.  Bundles are not to exceed 4 feet in length, greater than 2 feet in diameter, nor weigh more than 50 pounds Cans / plastic construction refuse bags are to be 35 gallon (max) in size, weight no more than 50 pounds each.
