Flood Brothers Disposal will provide a weekly collection of yard waste. For those residents who are interested, we will have 95-gallon carts available. A monthly rental price of $3.00 per cart per month would be applied.

Flood Brothers Disposal will provide yard waste collection from April 1st through November 30th on the same day as refuse and recycling collection each week.

All yard waste shall be placed in a plastic or metal container with a tight cover, or a biodegradable kraft bag, of a size no larger than 35-gallons and not exceeding 50-pounds or a Flood Brothers Disposal issued yard waste cart.

We will accept and collect all bundles of brush or limbs, providing the bundles do not exceed a weight of fifty (50) pounds per bundle, are not more than four (4) feet long, are not more than two (2) feet in diameter, do not contain limbs greater than three (3) inches in diameter and are tied with twine or string.


Flood Brothers Disposal will collect two (2) bulk items per week on refuse collection day at no charge. Additional bulk items are $7.00 per item. Residents are required to call ahead to schedule additional bulk items. Items that weigh more than 50-pounds will also require residents to contact our office to arrange for proper collection. Items that are considered bulk items: mattresses, box springs, tables, chairs, and other discarded furniture. Four (4) rolls of carpet will equal one (1) bulk item, (must be rolled, taped, or tied and no longer than 4 feet in length, 2 feet in diameter and 50-pounds in weight). Mattresses and box springs must be wrapped.


Flood Brothers Disposal will provide a special collection for Christmas trees during January.


Flood Brothers Disposal will also provide collection services for one (1) white good item (i.e. appliances) per week. Any additional white goods items are $15.00 per item. Examples include refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, air conditioners, water heaters, washers, dryers, etc. We ask that you remove the doors from any refrigerator and freezer. After the items are collected, Freon is safely removed (if present) and appliances are recycled. Appliances must be empty. Residents will be required to call our office 24 hours before collection to schedule the pickup.


Flood Brothers Disposal would inform residents to reach out to our office when possible hazardous waste material may need to be disposed of. We will work with the residents to find the best solution for disposal with the assistance of Cook County Recycling programs.


The following items are considered construction debris: drywall, rocks, excessive carpeting, doors, paneling, concrete, lumber, cabinets, and fixtures. All items must be placed in bags, plastic cans, and maximum 32-gallon containers, all of which cannot exceed the 50-pound weight limit. For an estimate of a construction debris collection, please contact our office. There is a $15.00 per yard (two-yard minimum) charge for collection service. Flood Brothers Disposal has roll-off dumpsters available for larger projects.


All materials (refuse, recycling, and yard waste) will be collected on the same day, once per week on Monday. There will be no change to the current collection day, but your collection time may so please have carts out for collection by 6am on your scheduled collection day.


If a holiday falls on a weekday or Sunday, (if a holiday falls on Sunday, the holiday will be observed on the following Monday) and your regularly scheduled pickup is on or after the holiday, your pickup will be delayed by one day.

The following is a list of observed holidays:

The U.S Environment Protection Agency states electronic waste is now the fastest-growing segment of our nation’s waste. 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 groundwater and present additional environmental concerns.

The State of Illinois electronic waste landfill ban is now a state law. Under this state law, electronic waste cannot be collected with household
refuse / waste.
