Glen Ellyn Curbside Composting Program
The Village of Glen Ellyn, together with Groot Industries, the Village’s contractual refuse/recycling hauler, offer a residential curbside composting program .  This program allows residents to “recycle” organic waste that would otherwise be placed in the trash and sent to a landfill. 
How the Program Works
The program is offered on a voluntary, subscription basis. Residents who sign up can select a 35 gallon, 65 gallon or 95 gallon wheeled cart. Subscribers who use the organics cart for their yard waste and food scraps will not be required to purchase yard waste bags or stickers.
