The City’s contract with Waste Management expires on April 30, 2021. The City requested proposals for both a sticker program like what is in place now, and a cart-service option for unlimited garbage and recycling. Four proposals were received, but none included a sticker program that matches what is in place today. Three of the four companies offered a sticker-based program with a flat monthly fee on top of the sticker pricing. Based on the evaluation of all the proposals received, the City Council has approved a contract for the cart-based service offered through Groot, Inc., effective May 1.
Here’s how it will work:
Service Type Rate
95-gallon cart (unlimited) $15.49/month
65-gallon cart (unlimited) $15.49/month
35-gallon cart (seniors only) $11.50/month
Yard-Waste $2.75/sticker OR $185/per season (subscription service)
Bulk Item First Item Free; Additional items require 5 yard waste stickers
More information about rates and a sticker buy-back program will be distributed in the April newsletter as well as on City social media sites. See www.warrenville.il.us/427/Garbage-Recycling-Yard-Waste for more details.
