Provisions of Refuse Contract

The City of Sycamore has approved a refuse contract with Waste Management that offers the citizens of Sycamore the following benefits and services:


  • Free 96-gallon cart: The new refuse contract calls for a free 96-gallon cart for each home. New homeowners, please note the "toter service," as it calls for new homes to be issued a cart.
  • Recycling Bin Program: In an effort to promote recycling of materials with remaining useful life, the new contract provides that if anyone moves into a home and finds that there is not a recycling bin, they will be issued one at no charge.

Toter Service

Each residence will receive one 96-gallon toter for refuse to be serviced once a week. Senior citizens 65 years of age or better may elect to have a 35-gallon toter in lieu of the 96-gallon toter. As new homes are built and occupied, new homeowners will be furnished with one 96-gallon toter. The toter will remain the property of Waste Management. Each toter has a unique serial number and is assigned to a specific address in the city.
