Refuse and Recycling Collection
The Village contracts with Allied Waste to provide refuse and recycling collection to all single family homes within Glen Ellyn. Residents are provided a single cart to use as their primary refuse container. The carts come in 35, 65 and 95 gallon sizes. Residents may also use additional 35 gallon containers or bags by purchasing stickers. Unlimited recyclables may be placed at the curb and collected at no charge. Recycling containers may be purchased at the Cashier's Office. Use the Village Services Application to sign up for refuse and recycling service.
Vehicle Stickers
Glen Ellyn residents must purchase a vehicle sticker for each car registered to a Glen Ellyn address. Stickers cost $25 per car (cost may vary depending on vehicle type) and expire each year on April 30. Residents also have the option to purchase a three-year vehicle sticker at a discounted price of $70. Purchase your vehicle stickers by mail using the Village Services Application below or at the Cashier’s Office. Vehicle stickers may also be purchased at the Police Department in the Civic Center when the Cashier's Office is closed.  Effective May 1 of each year, a late fee of $5 per month, per vehicle, will be assessed for vehicles that do not display the new sticker. In addition, the Police Department will issue $50 tickets for noncompliance.
