Sanitation

The City of Chicago Streets and Sanitation  has District and Ward Sanitation Offices throughout the city, responsible for:

  • Collecting residential garbage;
  • Operating the City’s Blue Cart Recycling Program;
  • Providing technical assistance and support for the City’s recycling initiatives;
  • Providing assistance for the development of city-wide waste reduction and management programs and policies; and
  • Coordinating street sweeping efforts for city main streets and side streets.

District and ward superintendents monitor their sections of the city for any non-sanitation bureau services that might be needed, reporting these to the appropriate bureau or outside agency for attention.

Blue Cart Recycling Program

Chicago is encouraging its residents and businesses to recycle using the “Blue Bin” trash cans for paper, tin, some plastics, cardboard, glass, and aluminum; and there is no sorting needed. View the City of Chicago’s guidelines here or the easy pocket guide here

Request Graffiti Removal from Graffiti Blasters

Started by Mayor Daley in 1993, Graffiti Blasters stepped up the battle against graffiti by offering a free removal service to private property owners. The Department of Streets & Sanitation’s crews remove this vandalism with “blast” trucks or paint crews.

Graffiti Blasters employs 13 “blast” trucks that use baking soda under high water pressure to erase painted graffiti from brick, stone and other mineral surfaces. They are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year! View more here.
