Will the Village perform special refuse pick-ups?

For large objects or quantities not practical for regular refuse pickup, a special curbside pickup may be requested. Special pickups are billed by volume and must consist of general household items that are small and light enough to be handled by two persons without danger of injury. You will be charged $35 for the first cubic yard and $13 for each additional cubic yard (A cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet). This cost will be reflected later on your utility bill. 

Major appliances and large heavy furnishings may also be collected, but a special handling charge will be assessed to cover costs and disposal. Call 847-716-3568 two to three working days before the desired collection date to schedule a special pickup.
