Residential Refuse Removal
The City of Hickory Hills has a contract with Waste Management for residential and two-flat apartment refuse pick-up. Garbage must be placed in a 95-gallon container, which is provided by Waste Management. Additional containers can be obtained directly from Waste Management (a rental charge will apply). Yard waste labels can be affixed to containers no larger than 35-gallon capacity. These labels may be obtained at the City Hall. Business and multi-family buildings need to contract their own refuse company and they will need to be registered with the City.
