Residential Refuse Changes

Beginning in spring of 2021, Winnetka residents will have the option of having their garbage collected from the curbside, using containers similar to the current recycling service containers. The service changes only affect single-family and townhome properties. All residents of single-family homes and townhomes are asked to fill out a form, found here, indicating their preference for service levels and container sizes by March 1, 2021.
