Carpet Recycling in Oak Park



The Village is testing curb side collection and recycling of used carpet and padding. The program is similar to the current yard waste and bulk garbage programs that use color-coded stickers to help cover costs. Residential units may place an unlimited number of rolls out for collection so long as each has two blue stickers attached. Each roll must be no more than four feet wide (cut or folded) and not exceed 50 pounds. The rolls must be placed in a dry location such as on/under a porch or in a garage. Program participants then contact the vendor via information on the sticker to arrange pick up. Stickers cost $2 each and can be purchased at the Village Hall Cashier's Office. For more information, call 708.358.5700 or e-mail
