Seniors that qualify for Kane County or Cook County “Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemptions” are eligible for a 35-gallon garbage cart at a reduced monthly rate (10% discount monthly).
Seniors may register for this service in person at the City Hall Cashier’s Desk, located at 150 Dexter Court, or by emailing an application to firstname.lastname@example.org and providing proof of eligibility.
Eligible seniors live in a single-family, owner occupied home, are 65+ years old, and have an annual income below $65,000.
Proof of Eligibility:
- Qualified tax bill from respective county showing you are currently receiving the Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption.
- Government issued identification card with proof of residency.
Once approved, the reduced rate will be on the following month’s water bill and Waste Management will deliver a 35-gallon cart with a black lid on your regular collection day.
*No changes will be made to qualified seniors' recycling carts or services.
*This program differs from the regular 35-gallon cart option, as it does NOT allow participants to place out an extra waste item each week.
