Prairieland Disposal Service Begins May 1st






Beginning May 1, 2018, there will be a new residential refuse, recycling and yard waste provider. Please see the below documents. 

Crystal Lake Letter to Residents

MDC's last collection day will be April 30, 2018. If you would like to arrange for service prior to April 30, 2018 or have questions regarding refuse, recycling and yard waste until that time, please contact MDC Environmental at (815)568-7274.

The City of Crystal Lake’s goal is to provide cost effective and quality services to the public. As you may be aware, the City contracts with a single hauler for residential curbside refuse, recycling and yard waste collection. Prairieland Disposal will begin collection on May 1, 2018. Even though Prairieland Disposal is new to the community, the scope of refuse, recycling and yard waste collection services will remain the same as in past years.

 Prairieland Disposal

Residents will receive a letter from Prairieland with a bill for the first quarter of service, which runs May through July. Similar to the current service, invoices will be sent quarterly, and residents can pay online, by phone, or through the mail. Residents will also receive a bill from MDC for the month of April.

New totes will be delivered in April, with additional information attached to them.
