    New residents should contact Republic Services at (708) 345-7050 to establish billing and select a service level. ((Note: Republic Services bills quarterly in advance.))
  • Residents having a refuse, recycling, or yard waste issue should first call Republic Services at (708) 345-7050. If the issue is not resolved residents should then contact the Village at (630) 368-5000 and ask for Donna.
