Refuse, Recycling & Yard Waste

Please visit home.wm.com/lombard or contact Waste Management directly at 866-570-4702 for customer service issues, inquiries or assistance.

Refuse and recycling services are provided for both residential and commercial properties by Waste Management under contract with the Village. Through this contract residents are provided a 64-gallon refuse toter and a 64-gallon recycling toter which are picked up once per week. Please see the Solid Waste Reference Guide for an overview of the refuse and recycling programs.

Refuse should be placed at the curb in covered containers by 6 a.m. on the day scheduled for your area. However, cans may not be put out on the parkway for refuse pick-up more than 12 hours before collection and must be removed within 12 hours after pick-up.

For clarification of contract and municipal code requirements, contact the Lombard Public Works Department at (630) 620-5740 or publicworks@villageoflombard.org. Waste Management contact preferences can be managed through www.wm.com/mypreferences (see instructional video.)
