Old Garbage Carts

OLD GARBAGE CARTS: The Town was “gifted” the old carts when we canceled service with Waste Management. Residents are welcome to keep their old carts (apparently they have many uses we are finding out), or else we are working on a mass pickup date at our Town shed in Potter for those who do not want to keep theirs. We will send a mailing out soon with the details for that pickup. Please do not use the old carts for roadside service. If you did not receive your new carts yet, or did not receive the correct amount, please email the clerk at clerk@townofrantoul.com. It’s difficult to keep up with so many forms of contact and the sheer number of inquiries, so please email if possible, or call 920-588-7013 if unable to email. Thank you!


ATTENTION TOWN RESIDENTS: GFL service will be starting next Wednesday, October 13th. Please have BOTH YOUR GARBAGE AND RECYCLING at the roadside by 6am. Since there was no recycling pickup last week by Waste Management for those residents that were scheduled, GFL has agreed to service the entire Town for both garbage and recycling. Please get the word out to as many people as you can who may not have internet access. We will continue on our regular pickup schedule moving on from that date. That will be as follows for the rest of the year:
October 13th-Recycling & Garbage for ALL residents
October 27th-Garbage for all, recycling for East of Cty Y
November 10-Garbage for all, recycling for Y & West
November 24th-Garbage for all, recycling for East of Cty Y
December 8-Gargabe for all, recycling for Y & West
December 22-Garbage for all, recycling for East of Cty Y
Thank you to everyone for your patience during this frustrating time!

New Garbage/Recycling Provider Effective October 1st, 2021

On Thursday, September 16th, Town of Rantoul Chairman Mertz signed a mutual agreement to terminate garbage and recycling service with Waste Management effective Thursday, September 30th. Last evening, Tuesday, September 22nd, at a special Town Board meeting, the Town of Rantoul Board unanimously agreed to approve a new contract with GFL Environmental for garbage/recycling effective on October 1st. In the transition to GFL, we will be using the same containers that you currently have. They will eventually be replaced with one 90/95 gallon garbage and one 90/95 gallon recycling container. We will no longer have multiple size options. The current pickup schedule will remain the same. If there are any questions during this transition, please contact the clerk’s office at 920-588-7013, and help us spread the word for those who may not have internet access to see updates to our Facebook page or website.

Garbage/Recycling Service for September 15th, 2021

Per Waste Management:
“Important Service Information.
Your trash service for 9/15/2021 has been rescheduled. We will return for service on 9/22/2021. Please make sure your container is accessible. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your patience and commitment to safety. Thank you for trusting Waste Management as your environmental solutions partner. We truly appreciate your business.”
We know this is frustrating, and we are currently making efforts to rectify these issues ASAP. Your patience and understanding during this time are very much appreciated.
