The Village of Sugar Grove Board is pleased to announce that beginning on Jul 31, 2017 DC Trash of Illinois will begin providing curbside waste collection service. The curbside service has been expanded to include additional items. Residents will now be able to easily dispose of weekly household refuse, recycling, yard waste, and bulk items as before and will now have access to curbside service that includes; the weekly curbside collection of white goods, monthly curbside collection of electronics, and quarterly curbside pickup of household hazardous waste.
Collection days will change, please see the attached list and map to find the day of your collection. Also attached is a calendar with the dates of pickup for electronics, household hazardous waste, and white goods. One thing that will not change is the monthly fee for refuse.
Each household will receive a new 65-gallon cart for their recyclables and a 96-gallon refuse cart. The carts will be of the same shape and size as provided currently. DC Trash will drop off the new carts the week of July 17, 2017. Residents may request an alternate size (65-gallon or 35-gallon) container for refuse and/or recycling at no cost until July 10th. To receive an alternate size cart please call to DC Trash at 815/758-7274 to make the request no later than July 10th. After this date there will be an exchange fee of $35 per container.
After the first year Residents will be able to replace containers once per year at no charge and at any time should they be damaged.
