Garbage & Recycling
Wheaton residents will receive curbside garbage, yard waste and recycling pickup service through Advanced Disposal Services (previously owned by Veolia) through June 30, 2016. Residents buy garbage/yard waste and leaf stickers to place on the respective containers for pickup. Rather than charging a flat fee, this system enables residents to only pay for what they throw away.
Note: Yard waste (grass clippings, brush, plant material and weeds) and leaves are collected at the curb from the first full week of April through the second full week in December.
For recyclable materials, Wheaton residents should use the blue 65-gallon blue recycling carts provided to their household. Recycling carts do not require stickers, encouraging Wheaton residents to recycle as much as possible.
