Through October, any resident in the Solid Waste Agency of Cook County (SWANCC) with front-door access (no apartments or condos) can arrange for a pickup. Residents may recycle up to six items, plus cell phones and calculators, per pickup (no single item over 50 lbs.) and must pay $25 via credit card to offset program costs.
