Can I request a second toter?

As one of the actions under the Waste Management section of the Environmental Sustainability Plan, the transition to once-weekly refuse collection is intended to encourage residents to reduce the amount of material that is being sent to the landfills by recycling and composting. That being said, we do recognize that there will be some households that truly need a second toter.

Following an initial sixty day once-per-week service start up period, residents can request a second toter online by selecting “Request a new Recycling/Refuse Cart or Lid” or by calling Public Works at 847-933-8427. Properties will be evaluated for a second toter on a case-by-case basis.
