New Fee Structure for Waste Carts
Submitted by the City of Evanston

As part of an ongoing effort to promote greener living, the City of Evanston has established a new sanitation fee structure that will increase the cost of 95-gallon refuse carts from $14.95 per month to $17.95 per month, effective January 2014.

Residents with 95-gallon carts will see the change reflected on their bills in March 2014. The monthly fee for the 65-gallon carts will remain the same, at $7.95. The price difference is designed to decrease the amount of waste generated by the City and encourage residents to reduce, reuse and recycle.

To help determine the size of your refuse cart, please refer to the serial number located on the front. The 65-gallon carts start with “65G” and the 95-gallon carts start with "95G". To avoid the increased fee, the City welcomes residents to downsize to a 65-gallon cart by Tuesday, December 31. Requests can be made by calling 3-1-1, or submitted online at

If residents exceed the capacity of the 65-gallon cart repeatedly, then they will automatically be upgraded to a 95-gallon cart and charged the increased monthly fee.

Thank you, to both the Evanston Round Table and to the City of Evanston's "powers-that-be" for informing Evanston residents, on December 12, 2013, that there will be an increase in the monthly cost of the 95 gallon refuse carts ($17.95 x 12 months) on January 1st. Apparently, this is only for private homes ----- not large apartment buildings, etc. Remember: if anyone in your neighborhood is overfilling your 65 gallon-cart,repeatedly, the cart will automatically be replaced with a larger/more expensive 95 gallon-cart. Watch your carts!!
