Refuse & Recycling

Republic Services Dump Truck

Refuse Services 

  • Village of Oak Brook refuse services are contracted out to Republic Services (former Allied Waste).
    New residents should contact Republic Services at (708) 345-7050 to establish billing and select a service level. (Note: Republic Services bills quarterly in advance.)
  • Residents having a refuse, recycling, or yard waste issue should first call Republic Services at (708) 345-7050. If the issue is not resolved residents should then contact the Village at (630) 368-5000 and ask for Donna.

Refuse Collection 

  • Pick-up is on Mondays for 1 time per week pick and on Mondays and Thursdays for 2 times per week pickup.
  • Refuse must be placed at the curb unless the resident has arranged with Allied Waste for rear door collection.
  • Cans or bags may weigh up to 50 pounds when full, and may hold up to 32 gallons of refuse.
  • Large, wheeled totters are available through Republic Services for an additional charge.
  • Please check with Republic Services before purchasing any container larger than 32 gallons since most have design features that are not compatible with Republic Services' equipment.
  • Collection of amounts of building or remodeling materials including carpeting, dirt, concrete, fixtures and furnishings, etc.; flood debris; and appliances containing hazardous components should be coordinated between Republic Services and the customer. Call Republic Services at (708) 345-7050 prior to the collection day to arrange for an estimate of cost.
