Residents of Monmouth
Millennium Waste Incorporated is your new waste collection service provider. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Monmouth, Illinois. We begin June 1, 2017. Your collection day will remain the same as in the past.
We will be providing a clean, automated service. Each resident will receive a cart for weekly waste collection. The cart will be 95 gallons, unless a smaller cart is requested. If you would like a cart smaller than 95 gallons, please call us at 309-787-2303 or City Hall at 309-734-2141.

If your waste does not all fit in your cart, additional bags will be collected if a MWI sticker is attached. Each bag will require a sticker. The stickers cost $2.00 each and may be purchased at City Hall or the City Transfer Station. The extra bag stickers may be used for items with the following maximum size limits: four feet in length, 33 gallons in volume, and 30 pounds in weight.
Bulk Waste items should be taken to the City Transfer Station for disposal. Bulk Waste items are those items utilized in a normal household setting that is other than normal household trash. These items are generally too largem either by weight or volume, to fit in a normal trash container. Examples of Bulky Waste items are: couches, hide-a-beds, chairs, tables, mattresses and springs, beds, waterbed frames, and small boxed do-it-yourself remodeling projects.
