Garbage Contract


If you opted out of the A-Team garbage contract with the city last year and would like the opportunity to opt-in, please give us a call at 217-636-8429. The monthly fee is 17.50 and will be added on to your water bill. Pick up is every Tuesday. They also offer recycling at no extra charge and it is picked up every other Thursday. You will also be included in the city clean up day (TBA) which is once a year. If you are wanting to switch over to A-Team Disposal we ask that you let us know by March 15th. Thank you!
