Residential Garbage Collection

APWA Logo Web

The City of Naperville contracted residential waste hauler is Allied Waste Services.

Under the five-year contract, residents are required to use garbage containers that are 32-gallons or less in size, weighing less than 60 pounds when filled. This regulation, a provision in both the current and prior contract, is strictly enforced. Residents preferring to use larger garbage containers are encouraged to purchase a residential garbage cart from the city. These garbage carts can easily be lifted mechanically by garbage trucks, which is why they can be larger in size. The weight limitation is 220 pounds of household waste. Under our contract, oversized garbage carts purchased from the city will be the only oversized containers permitted.

Residential Refuse Fee

Residents pay a $2 monthly residential refuse fee that appears on a monthly utility bill as a flat monthly rate.

For more information, visit the Residential Refuse Fee page.
