Refuse and Recycling

News Update: Buffalo Grove has renewed its contract with Waste Management. This new contract, effective May 1, 2019, will continue to provide the same services as well as a new service - At Your Door Service (AYD). The new AYD Program allows residents to schedule  a convenient pick-up for hazardous and difficult-to-recycle materials, such as electronics, televisions, paint, and chemicals! 

Curbside pick-up will remain the same and customers can keep their current carts and receive a free cart change-out up until June, 30, 2020. The new contract does include a rate change effective May 1, 2019  as outlined below (the last rate increase by WM occurred in 2017).  The new rates also include the additional monthly charge of the AYD program and will be reflected in your bill, which will be sent out by WM in April, 2019. With the addition of the AYD Program, the Village is offering increased services compared to similar communities, while keeping rates within the market average.
