Refuse & Recycling

The Village of Deerfield contracts with Waste Management to provide residential refuse and recycling services. 


Regular Collection Schedule


Tuesday and Wednesday: Those residents living north of Deerfield Road are serviced on Tuesdays, residents that live south of Deerfield Road on Wednesdays.

All items should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. (6:30 a.m. for Deerfield and Waukegan Roads) since Waste Management cannot guarantee a specific time the driver will be at your home.

Holiday Schedule


  • New Year's Day
  • Labor Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Independence Day
  • Christmas Day

Scheduled collections that fall on or after an observed holiday will be delayed by 1 day the week of the holiday only.

Additional Service Needs

If additional services are needed, such as scheduling a special pick for over-sized items or white goods, or to report a missed pick-up, residents can call Waste Management customer service at 800.796.9696.

Waste Management will not collect solid or liquid hazardous waste. Examples include paint, pesticides, petroleum derivatives such as motor oil and solvents; and explosive items. Additional information on how to dispose of household chemical waste and electronics can be found at the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County's website, or by calling 847-336-9340.
