Coming Soon: Area Residential waste & recycling pickup!

By the end of this month, Area Waste & Recycling will be sending a postcard to all single-family and duplex residential homes to sign up for totes.  The address side of the postcard will look like the picture

This postcard will provide options for the sizes of recycling and garbage totes you would like to have delivered to your door.  Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions:


  1. When will service start?  Thursday, May 3, 2018
  2. How much will I be charged per month?  You will be charged $14.75/month, or $13.27/month for seniors and disabled, directly on your utility bill.  You will pay for the service along with your payment for water, sewer and electric.
  3. How do I get a senior citizen discount?  You will need to apply at City Hall and provide proof of age or disability.  You must be 65 years of age or older or be receiving SSI
  4. Where will Area pick up my garbage?  Your garbage should be picked up in the same location as is currently.  However, if you have unusual circumstances, Area will work with you to find a solution.

Area will be providing contact information for detailed questions on the postcard.  Or feel free to contact City Hall at (309) 928-3412.  Thank you!!
