Flood Brothers offers refuse cart service plan options. Available refuse cart sizes are 95, 65 and 35 gallons. Under all three of these options, refuse will be collected with no need to have a refuse bag attached. Each additional container of refuse will be required to have a prepaid refuse bag attached in order to be collected. Additional carts are available from Flood Brothers for an added rental cost, and would eliminate the need for residents to place extra materials in a pre-paid refuse bag. Please call the office for more details.
Pay by the Bag Service w/65-Gallon Recycling Toter Under the “pay by the bag” option, residents selecting this option will be billed the monthly rate and will be required to use a prepaid refuse bag for each bag of refuse to be collected. Under this option the resident will receive unlimited recycling collection using the contractor supplied 65-gallon recycling cart and unlimited yard waste collection during the yard-waste season using Kraft paper bags or Bundles.
A 65-gallon recycling cart will be provided for residents subscribing to any of the refuse cart plans. Additional carts are available upon request for a fee. All equipment will be owned and maintained by Flood Brothers.
Recyclables are collected on your pickup day and must contain only acceptable items to be recycled. Recyclables that contain regular household waste will not be collected. Recyclable materials do not need to be separated, only rinsed to remove food residue prior to pickup. We recommend that all products are flattened and all labels, caps and lids are removed. Flood Brothers will collect reycling curbside using the single stream process. There is no limit to the number of recycling bins or to the quantity of recyclables that a household may put on the curb for collection. Residents may set out recycling bins which are clearly marked for recycling collection and do not exceed 35-gallons or 50lbs. Please place items loose in the cart, not inside of paper or plastic bags. A complete list of acceptable and unacceptable recyclables can be found here.
Yard Waste Collection takes place on the same day as trash and recycling pickups, beginning the first full service week in April and ending the final service week of November.
Flood Brothers will provide weekly collection of an unlimited amount of yard waste properly placed for collection at each location. All single-family customers with an active refuse account are eligible for the yard waste program. Residents are to use Kraft paper bags, 33 gallon containers, or in bundles. Residents may also call Flood Brothers if they prefer to use a 95-gallon container for yard waste. Residents may place yard waste made up of grass clippings, bundled branches, brush and garden materials (such as plants, flowers, weeds, vines, bark pieces, pine cones, etc.) in waterproof yard waste paper bags or in a metal or plastic waste container with tight cover no larger than 33-gallons, and not weighing more than 50 pounds. Residents living in an HOA development that opts out will not receive seasonal yard waste collection.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states electronic waste is now the fastest growing segment of our nation's waste stream. Electronic waste, from computers to TVs, contain toxic materials such as lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc and other potentially harmful chemicals. The EPA warns when electronics that contain these materials are not recycled or are not disposed of properly, the hazardous chemicals can contaminate the ground water and present additional environmental concerns. Illinois State Law bans electronic waste in landfills. Under this state law, electronic waste cannot be collected with household refuse/waste.
E-waste items banned from the landfill include:
Flood Brothers will provide a free drop off for approved electronics at the Village of Cary Public Works, 454 Cary Woods Circle.
