Scavenger service is provided exclusively by Allied Waste Services. Residential refuse will be picked up once a week at the curb or designated alleyways. The maximum size container that can be used is the 96 gallon toter that is supplied through Allied Waste. The cost of garbage removal is added to your water/sewer bill. Bulky items (furniture, appliance, etc.) will be picked up at no extra charge, although Allied does request a courtesy call when these items will be disposed of. They can be reached at (708) 385-8252. If disposing of carpet, they ask it to be cut into no longer than 4′ sections, rolled and bound. Please remember when disposing of refrigerators or freezers to remove the doors as a precautionary measure. If you have electronic waste please contact Allied for a special pickup. They will not pick up any electronics unless it has been set up with the company.
