On March 2, 2009, the Village of Wheeling approved an extended five-year exclusive franchise agreement with Waste Management (WM) for the collection of residential refuse, recycling and landscape waste.  This extended agreement became into effect on June 1, 2009 and ends on
May 31, 2014.

If residents or businesses observe scavengers (person or company) other than Waste Management collecting or removing any refuse or recycling from any property, please contact the Police Department (Non-Emergency) at 847-459-2632.

The Village of Wheeling utilizes heavy duty wheeled carts. Each residence has been assigned one 96-gallon cart for refuse and one 64-gallon cart for recyclables, unless a larger or smaller cart is requested. Requests for containers must be made through Waste Management at (800) 796-9696. These carts are the property of the Village of Wheeling and are not to be removed from the residence.

Waste Management continues to provide regular weekly curbside collections for every single family, townhome/duplex and multi-family residential dwelling in the Village. Collections include refuse, including bulk items, and recycling. Landscape waste is collected on the same day as regular service from April 1 through November 30.
