Garbage: Effective July 1, 2018 a moratorium on the collection of the monthly garbage fee has been approved. This is a direct result from the sale of sewer system to Aqua Illinois and the interest that is gained from the proceeds of the sale.
Any village customer who formerly paid a monthly garbage fee will no longer receive a bill from the village for garbage collection. The village will pay the garbage fees (household waste & recycle containers) for all single family, duplex and townhome residences.
New residents who moved into the village are still required to set up an account with the village even though there is no charge. Please call 815-929-4800 to set up the account.
All residents are provided one (1) household waster container and one (1) recycle container. If extra containers are required, the resident should call Homewood/A & J Disposal for the details (708-748-8381). There is a fee for extra containers. Yard waste must be placed in the brown bio-degradable sacks.
2018 Recycling Schedule stickers are available at local banks, library and Village Hall. Never miss the scheduled recycling pick-up day again. Click here for copy of 2018 Sticker
