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 call Advanced Disposal at 847-272-4145 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; 32-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.
