Here are a couple of the frequently asked questions.­

2.) What Should We Do With The Old Containers­

Residents can dispose of the containers by placing a "please remove" note. Residents may also write directly on old containers. Republic will only take the containers with clear indication that they are to be removed.

7.) How Will Senior Citizens Register For The Orange Bag Program­

Senior citizens will receive a separate mailer to confirm their registration in the orange bag program. All questions regarding the orange bag program should be directed to Republic Services at 630-892-9294.



(Aurora, Ill) - The City of Aurora is reminding all residents that the deadline to select new trash and recycling carts under Aurora's new Trash and Recycling Program is quickly approaching.
If residents have not yet selected carts, the process to do so is fast and simple. Residents should call Republic Services at 630-892-9294 to speak with a Customer Service Representative.
Residents have the option to select from three different sizes for trash carts and two different sizes for recycling carts. There are also additional options for senior citizens and low-volume users that are still available.
Selection cards were mailed to residents last month with a special verification code for each household. However, because the deadline is quickly approaching, residents should call 630-892-9294 to place orders instead of mailing in the selection cards. The Customer Service Representatives will already have the verification code for each household.­
Current cart customers have the option of keeping their current carts, but the City is still asking current cart customers to notify Republic Services of that decision by calling 630-892-9294.
Residents who do not respond will automatically receive a 65-gallon trash cart and a 65-gallon recycling cart. ­To make sure that the carts are best fit for the needs of each household, call Republic Services at 630-892-9294 and make a personal selection.
