Garbage, Recycling and Landscape Waste Cart Orders

The Town of Normal operates an automated wheeled garbage cart program for the collection of household waste. To have your trash collected, you must utilize a Town-issued garbage cart.

Additionally, the Town of Normal offers single stream curbside recycling to residents in single family and duplex homes.  In order to participate in the curbside recycling program, you must have a Town-issued, wheeled cart.

Landscape Waste Carts (wheeled garbage carts with landscape waste decals) are available to order. The use of a Town cart is not required for landscape waste collection. See Landscape Waste for more details.
