How do I get replacement refuse cans or recycling containers?

The Village will empty two garbage cans no larger than 37-gallons back-door once a week. Cans can be purchased at home improvements stores and the Village prefers them to be galvanized. Residents can purchase as many recycling containers as needed at the Village Hall and Public Works will deliver them to the home. Call Public Works at 847-716-3568 for more information.
