Division and Sanitation Offices

The Bureau of Sanitation has District and Ward Sanitation Offices throughout the city responsible for coordinating local garbage pick-up, sanitation code enforcement, snow removal operations and other services.  District and ward superintendents monitor their sections of the city for any non-sanitation bureau services that might be needed, reporting these to the appropriate bureau or outside agency for attention.

The bureau also handles collections for the Blue Cart Recycling Program.   More than one million tons of garbage and recyclables are collected annually.

In addition to keeping Chicago's alleys clean, the bureau is responsible for coordinating street sweeping efforts.
