Residential, business, and industrial customers will see across-the-board reductions in refuse, recycling, and yard waste collection rates in the village of Roselle when Flood Brothers Disposal/Recycling Services becomes the new vendor starting April 1, 2020.

The village board approved the five-year exclusive residential and commercial solid waste, recycling, and yard waste collection and disposal contract with Flood Brothers on Dec. 2, 2019.


The transition of switching over to Flood Brothers from the village's current vendor, Republic Services, has already begun. Roselle customer accounts have already been generated, and Flood Brothers will begin delivering 65-gallon garbage and recycling carts to residential customers starting March 15. The new carts will be green with a black lid for trash, and green with a yellow lid for recycling. Flood Brothers will also begin swapping out carts and dumpsters for business, industrial, and multi-unit residential customers at this time. All of the new carts are expected to be delivered by April 1.

Flood Brothers will begin accepting requests from those who wish to exchange the initial carts for different sizes starting April 8.

Republic Services will pick up their carts from residential customers in late-March, following regular garbage days. For those with Wednesday service, this will begin on March 25; for those with Tuesday service, this will begin on March 31.

Residential customers are asked to leave their carts out near the curb on these days, after their garbage and recycling have been picked up -- another truck will come to pick up the carts. Please do not place carts out on the street as street sweeping services are also scheduled to begin in late March.

For a short period of time, residential customers will have carts for both Flood Brothers and for Republic Services.

The village will lift its ban on unscreened garbage carts visible from the street from March 15 through April 20. No tickets will be issued for visibly stored garbage carts or carts left out at the curb during this time period.
