Refuse & Recycling
DC Trash Collection Services began August 1, 2017

The Village Board has approved a new refuse contract with DC Trash for all residential properties effective August 1, 2017. 

Under the new contract, DC Trash will pick up unlimited trash and recycling each week. Unlimited tied bundles of brush and bags of yard waste can be disposed of each week from April 1st through the end of November. There is no need for stickers ever!  Weekly pickup also includes one bulk item (furniture such as sofa, mattress, etc. or up to 8 rolls of carpeting or padding that has been cut into rolls no larger than 4 feet long and each bundle is not to exceed 50 lbs. in weight).  One White Good may be disposed of each week also; these are items such as fridges or AC units.  Due to this expanded service, there will be no need for a spring or fall cleanup week.  Please refer to the recycling page for info on what is recyclable and what is not.

The new monthly rate will be $16.47 per household, compared to the current $19.65 per household. 

This applies to all residential addresses in the Village of Montgomery, but not Boulder Hill or other unincorporated areas. To view the map showing your area's pick-up day, click on this map link.

There are only six trash pickup holidays:  New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  When one of these holidays falls on a weekday, DC Trash will collect on the following day for the rest of that week.  If the holiday falls on a weekend, trash pickup will not be affected.

DC Trash provides a 95 gallon trash cart and 65 gallon recycling cart to each home. To report a missed pick-up or to request a different size cart, please call DC Trash Direct at 815-758-7274, or email  . Requests for different size containers may incur a fee from DC Trash.

Available cart sizes are 95 gallon, 65 gallon and 35 gallon. If you did not call by July 7, 2017, by default you will get a 95 gallon trash cart and a 65 gallon recycling cart.  Here are the measurements:

35 gallon--18" wide, 24" deep, 36" high
65 gallon--24" wide, 28" deep, 42" high
95 gallon--27" wide, 35" deep, 45" high
