How Do I?
Curbside Recycling Program
The village has supplied each household with one recycling bin and additional bins may be purchased from Waste Management by calling 800-796-9696, or at Ace Hardware located at 8625 Woodward Ave. in Woodridge. Larger wheeled recycling toters are also available through Waste Management. There is no limit to the number of recycling bins that can be set at the curb, but crushing cans, cardboard and plastic will help save space.

There is no special way to arrange recyclables in the container, but care should be taken so items do not fly or drop out. Items must be visible and cannot be placed in plastic bags which are not recyclable. Only materials on the approved recycling list will be accepted, and all items should be rinsed and free of food or any other non-recyclable material.

Any non-recyclable material put in the recycling bin will be left in the container at the curb. For full details of the recycling program and the acceptable items list, refer to your Waste Management Brochure. The more you recycle, the more money you save!

Before You Recycle, Find Out if You Can Donate

There are many organizations that accept donations of reusable items to benefit individuals, charitable causes and the community.  Goodwill, DuPage County Convalescent Center, veterans' groups and many others accept clothing and household items.  Habitat for Humanity accepts building supplies, household goods and furniture.  S.C.A.R.C.E. accepts books and school supplies for underfunded classrooms.  Visit the Village's Donation page, DuPage County, or call Public Works at (630) 719-4753 for information on these and other organizations where items can be donated.  Always check with the organization to make sure it accepts the items you wish to donate and be sure all items are clean and in usable condition.
