Household Waste Disposal Solutions

Household Waste Chart

There are many items in our homes that residents do not know how to dispose of correctly. Some are allowed to be disposed of in regular household garbage, and others must be disposed of in a manner that will protect the environment.

The Household Waste Chart (PDF) provides additional guidelines for effective disposal of household waste.

Collection Events

Many household items should not be disposed of with regular garbage removal. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency lists many items that are taken at one-day collection events. This will give a list of items that are accepted, as well as those that are not accepted.
