Garbage Pick Up

Occasionally, you may have additional items or cans which may be placed for pick up if they have

a tag attached to them. The cost of the tag is $1.50 each and will be available at City Hall (55 E. North

Avenue), Jewel Foods (Mannheim and Grand), Walgreen’s (North and Wolf) and Public Works

(100 W. Palmer).

Yard waste must be placed in brown paper yard waste bags or a container NOT larger than 33

gallons (maximum weight – 60 pounds).  Yard waste in plastic bags or oversized containers will

not be picked up.   If you have metal items, such as appliances, water heaters, storm doors, lawn furniture, etc. you

should place these items out on Thursday without a tag as the recyclers will most likely pick up these items

quickly.  You can always add a tag in the morning.      Should you have any questions, please feel free

to contact City Hall at 708-343-8700. With your cooperation, this program will successfully serve

the residents of Northlake.


Just a Reminder

All electronic items must be disposed of at Public Works, 100 W. Palmer. Do not leave them out for garbage collection. They will not be picked up. For televisions and computer monitors, you must purchase a sticker from City Hall. The cost is $5.00. The sticker must be affixed to these items. There is no charge for any other item. Public Works is open 7:30 to 3:00 Monday through Friday.
