For an annual fee, residents can rent out a new bin for their organic waste like food scraps and yard waste instead of purchasing the specialized bags and stickers provided in the years before.
Participants in the program have the choice of a 64-gallon bin for $108 a year or a 96-gallon on for $126 a bin.
The contents of the bins will be able to decompose rather than pile up.
“It keeps it out of the landfills so Waste Management will be able to take the contents elsewhere because you don’t want it in the landfills,” said Operations Team Leader at Naperville Public Works Christine Schwartzhoff.
