Refuse, Recycling & Yard Waste Program

The Village contracts with Advanced Disposal (formerly Veolia) for its Solid Waste Collection. All households are provided with wheeled refuse and recycling toters from Advanced Disposal.

NOTE: Bulk Item Collection Resumed Monday, May 11. Advanced Disposal has determined that is safe for their drivers to resume bulk collection while continuing to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Please help Advanced Disposal’s crews transition back to bulk collection service by refraining from putting out large piles all at once.

Monthly Saturday drop-offs for electronics recycling at the Public Works Facility (711 Laramie Ave) will resume on 7/11/20.

If you experience a missed collection please contact Public Works at pubworks@wilmette.com or 847-853-7500. For more information about the solid waste program, please utilize the links below.
