Alsip Village Board OK, new electronic waste collection contract

ALSIP, IL – Local residents will be able to dispose of unwanted items and electronics through curbside pickup after Alsip Village Board of Directors approved a new contract that includes new services from electronic waste collection.

Village officials announced this week that residents will be able to get rid of larger items such as computers, computer monitors, washers and dryers, refrigerators, microwaves, large kitchen units, air conditioning, dehumidifiers, a sump pump, stereo equipment and other items with a cord.

Residents will need to arrange pickup dates and times with Republic Services, who will collect curbside times from a resident once an agreed time is established, village officials said. To do this, residents should contact Republic directly by calling (708) 385-8252 to schedule pickup.

Village officials also announced that local residents can get rid of their Christmas tree by placing the tree on their sidewalk with their regular garbage.

Residents can also dispose of up to two loose items such as sofas and other furniture on regular garbage collection dates without paying a fee. The village said this week that residents who need to dispose of items over a cubic meter or weighing over 50 pounds should organize the collection with Republic. The disposal company will then charge a fee of $ 25 to pick up the larger items once arrangements have been made for the larger items to be collected.

Construction debris is also allowed to be picked up, but residents should make specific arrangements with Republic Services for such materials to be picked up. Republic Services will charge $ 10 per cubic meter for the pickup of construction or home improvement debris in 2022 before the fees gradually increase in the years to come.
