But seriously, some changes are coming to our residential solid waste pick up.
Our current contract with Waste Management is set to expire on April 30. After several years with this hauler, the Village Board thought it prudent to see what all refuse hauling companies had to offer. Our goal was to secure the most comprehensive service for our residents at the best price.
After receiving a number of proposals, staff and elected officials interviewed three companies. On March 2, the Village Board approved a contract with Environmental Recycling & Disposal for the pick up and disposal of residential trash, recycling and yard waste. The most significant increase in service is the elimination of all stickers for yard waste and extra trash, along with unlimited yard waste pick up utilizing an optional toter or biodegradable yard waste bags.
More detailed information on the expected transition time frame can be found here, and updates will be available on our website and social media outlets. In addition, both the Village of Channahon and Environmental Recycling & Disposal will be sending direct mailings to Channahon residents.
