  • All trash/refuse and recycling must be placed in the company designated cart. Loose items outside of the carts will not be collected.
  • All bulk item pickup/collection is suspended until further notice.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to all of our professional and personal lives, and Advanced Disposal is not immune to these events.  At this time, they are adjusting their workforce and practicing protocols and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  In terms of their frontline services and collection services, they are providing a public health service and will continue to deliver our services as efficiently and effectively as possible.  

Finally, communication will be very important over the next few weeks.  Advanced Disposal understands how much our community relies on their services.  As of this time, all disposal facilities are operational.  In the event of any issues that could affect collections in Waukegan, they will reach out immediately to advise of the issue, and determine a response that works.  If you have questions about these changes, contact Advanced Disposal at 847-623-3870.
