Residential Waste Removal

IRS offers rear load containers for multi-family communities including apartments, condominiums, town homes and senior living communities. We offer varying collection schedules and container sizes, customized to fit your building’s needs. We can also provide trash compactors to further meet the needs of your residents.

Chicago has mandated for multi-unit dwellings to participate in some form of recycling. Independent Recycling can help your property meet these compliance challenges by providing the necessary recycling containers for the building. To help the recycling program exceed, we will provide ongoing recycling guidelines and resident education. We have the tools necessary to communicate with management on the status of the recycling program that will assist you in meeting your sustainability standards.

  • In the City of Chicago, recycling is mandatory. Single-family homes and buildings of 4 or less units can recycle through the City of Chicago’s Blue Cart Program. All other buildings are required to have a recycling program through one of the city’s private haulers.
  • Recycling has a positive impact: When you recycle, you divert materials away from the landfill and lower the need to extract raw, natural resources to make new products.
  • The below guide outlines what is accepted in our program for residential buildings. Please note that we offer separate programs for Universal Waste (electronics, batteries, bulbs, and ink/toner cartridges), Compost, and Paper Shredding / Document Destruction.
