New Service Activation
If you have moved into a new home or condominium to receive your refuse and recycling carts you will need to activate service to your address. To activate new service, dial 311 (847 931-6001) between the hours of 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. There is no charge associated with activating service to your address.
The City of Elgin contracts with Waste Management to provide service to single family dwellings, multiple-family dwellings up to and including five units, and to owner-occupied condominium and townhome properties.
