In the event of a weekday holiday, pickups for that week may be delayed by up to a day.

Pickup Information

With the automated collection system, the driver does not leave the vehicle.  Residents who do not take part in the curbside garbage and recycling program cannot leave extra refuse alongside the container; instead, items must be broken down to fit inside the toter. Residents who do participate in the program may leave one bulk item (or an extra bag of refuse) next to their container. See the Bulk Item Collection section of the Waste Management Gurnee website for more information and to schedule a pickup.

Please do not pack garbage so tightly into the container that it will not empty.
