Transfer Station

Transfer Station

The Glenview Transfer Station is available to commercial and landscape contractors and other commercial entities for the disposal of landscape waste, solid waste, and construction debris.

Here are the basic recycling guidelines for curbside programs in SWANCC communities.  Check with your village or city for updates.

 


 

 

To prepare your items for recycling:

  • Empty and rinse bottles, cans and containers to remove food or beverage residue
  • Place only approved items in the cart.
  • Do not “bag” recyclables – put them in the outside cart loose.
  • Put caps back on plastic bottles and jugs – DO NOT crush!
  • Flatten boxes and place inside your cart.
  • Remove wax bags from food boxes (such as cereal or cracker boxes).
  • Labels can remain on jars/bottles and plastic windows on envelopes.
  • Keep the lid on your recycling cart closed at all times to keep materials dry.

There are four very important words to remember:  Empty – Clean – Loose – Dry!
