UPDATE: Special Flood Damage Waste Pick-Up Services

The Village of Grayslake has arranged for special pick-up services with Waste Management to assist residents in disposing of flood damaged items as a result of the recent extreme rain storm.

Residents that have experienced flood damage and are looking to dispose of flood damaged items must register for this special pick-up service by visiting the Request for Service System or calling the Village of Grayslake at 847-223-8515.  PLEASE NOTE: Only flood damaged items will be accepted as part of this special pick-up service.

Special pick-up services will begin on Monday, July 17th and run through Friday, July 28th.  Items placed at the curb after Wednesday, July 26 will not be picked up.  After July 26 residents can call Waste Management at 1-800-796-9696 to arrange for a special pick-up at their cost.  Due to the high volume of requests Waste Management will be performing this service on a rolling basis.  Waste Management will be completing pick-ups on Saturday during this period.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the high volume of requests Waste Management will be performing this service on a rolling basis.  Waste Management will be completing pick-ups on Saturday during this period.  Special pick-up services may include multiple truck visits in a route within a day.   In a few highly impacted areas the Public Works Department will be assisting with the special pick-up service.  If a Waste Management truck passes your home without collecting your items, please leave your items at the curb and another truck will be by for collection at a later time.

Residents participating in this special pick-up service should follow these preparation steps for the disposal of damaged items:

  • DO NOT place any flood damaged items in your recycling cart.  Please place all items at the curb adjacent to your waste/recycling carts.
  • Debris must be contained in cans or bags not exceeding 33-gallons in size and no heavier than 45 lbs. each.
  • Debris may be bundled; however, cannot exceed 45 lbs. in weight and 4-feet in length and no wider than 2-feet in diameter.
  • Carpeting must be rolled, taped, or tied. Carpet, after being rolled and tied, should be no longer than 4-feet in length and no wider than 2-feet in diameter and weigh no more than 45 lbs. each.
  • Larger items such as damaged furniture may be placed at the curb adjacent to garbage/recycle containers.
  • Appliances may NOT be disposed of as part of this special pick-up service.  Residents looking to dispose of flood damaged appliances must schedule a separate pick-up with Waste Management directly by calling 1-800-796-9696.
  • Electronic items may NOT be disposed of as part of this special pick-up service.  Electronic items may be disposed of at the Grayslake Recycling Center located at 585 Berry Avenue in Grayslake.
