No, but any excess recyclables beyond the confines of the provided recycling cart must be placed in a resident-owned container designated for recycling and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Residents who consistently generate recyclables in excess of their cart capacity may be asked to either get a larger cart or an additional cart.

A 32-gallon can with a maximum weight of 50 pounds is the maximum size.
Items like furniture or mattresses may be placed at the curb on service day with one refuse sticker. Construction debris should be contained in bags or bundles less than 50 pounds, no more than 4 feet in length, and no more than 2 feet in diameter with one refuse/yard waste sticker per bag or bundle. Advance notice is not required.
Items such as refrigerators (doors removed), hot water heaters (drained), and dishwashers may be disposed of by calling Waste Management/Advanced Disposal at 630-587-8282 at least 1 day prior to service. The call alerts the hauler that there is an item which likely exceeds the normal 50-pound limit so they can schedule a different truck for collection. Each appliance requires one refuse sticker.
Disposal of water softeners: Unit must be completely drained of water from tanks, and all salt must be removed from the unit. Call Waste Management/Advanced Disposal at least 1 day prior to service to schedule a special collection, which still requires only one refuse sticker.
Latex paint cans should be put in regular trash; lids can go in recycling cart. If paint remains, it must be in a solidified form. For small amounts of paint, just add kitty litter or oil dry to absorb the paint. For larger amounts, pour paint over kitty litter or oil dry into a large pan to solidify. Do not place cans of paint in liquid form in regular trash, as the cans will leak paint on the street. Latex paint is also accepted for a fee at certain Kane County recycling events.
Oil-based paint can be disposed of at the City of Naperville Household Hazardous Waste drop off site located at 156 Fort Hill Drive in Naperville (just east of Route 59), on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This facility is open and available to all residents of Illinois. Business waste is not accepted. Oil-based paint is also accepted for a fee at certain Kane County recycling events.
