The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical spaces. Please call ahead or visit any department's website to get additional details, or visit chicago.gov/covid-19.
All residential garbage is placed in plastic, lidded 96-gallon garbage carts often referred to as super carts supplied free to Chicagoans. The city's garbage trucks are hydraulically equipped to lift and empty these carts automatically in what is the largest system of its kind in the world.
Missing or damaged carts are replaced or repaired by calling the Bureau of Sanitation city's request line at 3-1-1 or click on the button below to request additional garbage carts.
