More trash talk

If you want to avoid next months’ city refuse fee increase, it’s time to sign up to get a smaller refuse cart.

If you scale back from the current 95-gallon cart to a 65-gallon one, your monthly refuse collection fee will stay at the current $6.95.

If you stay with a 95-gallon cart, the fee goes up to $10.95.

Residents with the bigger carts can also put out one 30-gallon trash bag. No such margin for users of the smaller carts.

Residents with a lot of trash — who need an additional wheeled refuse cart — will pay an extra $6.95 a month — and pay a one-time $75 fee for the extra cart. 

To downsize to a 65-gallon cart call the city’s streets and sanitation division at 847-866-2940.

The form for ordering an extra refuse cart is available online and from the city collector’s office.
