The City of Wheaton does have some rules for putting your garbage at the curb for your weekly pickup. The ordinance allows for garbage cans to go out after 6 p.m. the night before the scheduled pickup day. Cans and all items not collected for disposal must be removed from the curb by 7 p.m. on the day of the scheduled collection day. Please do not put out furniture, metal, yard waste, or any other items intended for haul-away before the day of your scheduled pickup.
Sometimes, items are not taken by the haul-away company. The homeowner is responsible for retrieving any uncollected items from the curb and calling the haul-away service for proper disposal instructions. Our current contractor for garbage pickup is LRS. They can be reached by calling 773-685-8811.
