Program Costs

The weekly collection of garbage, recycling and yard waste/leaves/organics will be less expensive for most households. While Wheaton’s previous program included the cost of recycling in the garbage sticker price, the new program separates out the price for each service. Pricing will be as follows (effective 9/15/17 through 9/14/18):

Garbage

  • 35-gallon cart: $1.46 per pickup
  • 65-gallon cart: $2.92 per pickup
  • 95-gallon cart: $4.38 per pickup

Recycling

  • 35-gallon cart: $1.20 per pickup
  • *65-gallon cart: $1.20 per pickup (*This is the standard recycling cart you already use)
  • 95-gallon cart: $1.14 per pickup
