Yes. All residents of Campton Township are required to use Waste Management. The Campton Township Solid Waste Disposal District is a township district that was created to find the best value, service and options for the township residents. After a 2014 resident survey and open house, the CTSWDD studied all available options and found Waste Management to be the best choice. By having a single waste hauler the residents get the lowest price possible.

The Recycling Cart is included with all Waste Cart options. There is no fee for the recycling cart.
If you already have a recycling cart and want to change sizes, a $15.00 cart exchange fee will apply. Please call Waste Management at 800-796-9696 to arrange for the exchange.
New homeowners have a one-time option within the first 30 days of occupancy to contact Waste Management customer service at to request a larger or smaller recycling cart. The following sizes are available: 35-gallon, 64-gallon and 96-gallon.
No. No. The drivers look for the 96-gallon Waste Management cart as the visual indicator of the Take-All Option. With the Take-All Option, stickers will not be required for refuse outside the cart. Also, one bulk item (see below for definition) per week will be taken at no extra cost to resident. Additional bulk items will require one sticker ($2.85 per sticker) per item. No charge for one White Goods item (see below for definition) per week.
For 35-gallon or 64-gallon waste carts, Waste Management drivers will collect extra bags of refuse or bulk items only if each bag or item has a sticker ($2.85 per sticker). White Goods will be removed for a fee of $25.00 per item (please call Waste Management to prepay and schedule a pick-up date.)
Only on a limited basis. The program is intended to use Waste Management supplied carts. These WM-supplied carts can be lifted and emptied by the truck which reduces labor costs and driver injuries. Even if the non-WM waste cart appears to be the same size and/or design, Waste Management will only service the WM-supplied carts with the truck because of liability, durability, compatibility and safety reasons.
Cans or bags can be used only after the WM-supplied cart has been filled. The can or bag must be no larger than 32-gallons in size and not exceed 50 lbs. in weight. The drivers will have to manually load these containers into the trucks. If you use a can, do not place a sticker on the can or lid, place the sticker on top of the items in the can. If no sticker is present the can will not be emptied. See below for sticker information.
“Bulk Items" means items including, but not limited to, beds, box springs, mattresses, sofas, furniture, furnishings, fixtures. All bulk items must be at a weight that is manageable for one person to lift (not drag).
“White Goods” include all discarded refrigerators, ranges, water heaters, freezers, air conditioners, humidifiers and other similar domestic and commercial large appliances.

Yes. Under the new contract the service option you select will increase by 3% per year over the five year contract.
The Campton Township Solid Waste Disposal District (CTSWDD) was created pursuant to the provisions of 70 ILCS 3105 et seq, for the specific purpose of providing for the collection and disposal of solid waste within the Townships’ jurisdiction. They were created in 1990 by public referendum and have previously entered into collection and disposal contracts previous to the contract currently being considered. The authority of units of local government to enter into exclusive contracts is long-standing in the State of Illinois under the “Police Power” authority exercised by units of government. This power is derivative of the need to protect the public health and safety. Although CTSWDD would have the authority to enter into non-exclusive contracts (multiple haulers), it has elected not to do so for a number of economic, safety and health reasons. Certainly a single hauler provides for cheaper pricing as the hauler who makes every stop as they proceed down the road, can do so at a lower per unit cost. The benefit of only having one hauler move down the road reduces traffic and wear and tear on the roadway, particularly where the heavy trucks travel on the edge of the pavement. The fewer number of trucks also adds to the safety of the other traffic on the roadway system. The selection of a waste hauler with proven and reliable experience history assures the public that the waste will be collected and removed to a secure disposal facility to prevent public health issues.
