Chicago Market Disposal Facilities
Planning for the Future
Republic Services operates a network of seven landfills that serve the waste needs of the Chicagoland area, providing more disposal capacity than any other waste company in the market.
With more than 150 million cubic yards of airspace available or being developed, our significant available landfill capacity means more years of uninterrupted service to our customers.
With our network of hauling companies, transfer stations and landfills, we are the largest and most prepared company in the Chicago market providing single-supplier service to our customers, managing their waste from the time it is collected until long after it is disposed. This limits any potential problems that may arise from third-party involvement in the process.
Our facilities are committed to supporting the communities they represent, and each facility provides significant financial support to local environmental and governmental programs.
Each of our landfills is constructed and operated to exceed applicable state and federal rules for disposal facilities.
In addition to regular and frequent inspections performed by state and local agencies, our facilities routinely are audited by many of our customers. Customer-driven audits provide the peace of mind they deserve and may help reduce their insurance costs. Our facilities are ready and available to any customer who wishes to inspect or audit our operations.
