Organics/Yard Waste Carts  Still Available

Republic Services reminds residents of  the limited availability of new Organics/Yard Waste carts for Addison residents at no additional cost.

The carts are made available through a recently negotiated agreement between the Village of Addison and Republic Services, the Village’s refuse and recycling collection services provider.

To request a cart, visit  Once residents complete the online form and hit “Submit”, they will get a “Thank You” screen to confirm their response has been received and to allow 5-7 business days for cart delivery.  Residents may also call the Village of Addison Public Works Dept. 630-620-2020 to request a cart.

The 65-gallon carts are only for use to dispose household organic materials and yard waste.  Materials in the blue-color carts marked “YARD WASTE ONLY” will be collected on the regular residential collection day, during the Village’s yard waste collection season, April to November, along with household refuse and curbside recycling. Residents may continue to use their existing yard waste containers, and yard waste bags, but only for landscape waste.

Items that may be placed in the organics/yard waste carts include food waste, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, eggs/shells, coffee grounds, breads, cereal, tortillas, rice and beans, and pasta.  Yard waste material allowed in the cart includes grass, tree and brush clippings, flowers, houseplants and leaves.  No other materials are to be placed in the cart. 

Recycling organic waste not only creates nutrient-rich compost, but also promotes a sustainable environment by keeping beneficial materials out of landfills.
