Curbside Food Scrap Composting Available April 1st

Beginning in April, residents with yard waste carts can compost food scraps along with their regular yard waste. There is no subscription needed, but you must have a yard waste cart to participate as food scraps are not permitted in paper yard waste bags.

To request a yard waste cart, please contact Advanced Disposal at 847-272-4145 or email and one will be delivered to your home free of charge. Please note, yard waste stickers are still required for collection: 96-gallon carts require 3 stickers per collection; 35-gallon carts will require 1 sticker per collection.

Acceptable food scraps include fruits and vegetables, dairy and eggs, bread, grains, cereal, pasta, teabags, and coffee grounds and filters.
