This morning, Wed., May 5, the Village of Maywood and Allied Republic Services began their annual large item pickup service.

“Large, bulky household items and junk are acceptable. Smaller, loose items must be in containers or tied and bundled. Household hazardous waste will NOT be accepted. Please have your discarded items at your garbage pick-up point on Wednesday morning of the week Allied is coming to your neighborhood,” according to a village statement.

Public Works Director John West noted that residents will be able to put out “anything big,” from televisions to couches. Allied will also be picking up paint, he said. Residents throwing out paint, however, should be sure to purchase and apply a hardening agent to the paint before putting it out to waste, West said. Hardening agent can be purchased at Maywood’s family owned Braun Paint Co., 807 S. 5th Avenue, or at most hardware stores.

The dates and routes for the pickups are below: 

  • May 6: Roosevelt north to 1-290; 1st Avenue west to 25th Avenue

  • May 13: I-290 north to Madison; Greenwood west to 21st Avenue

  • May 20: Madison north to Railroad; 1st Avenue west to 21st Avenue

  • May 27: Main Street north to village limits; Des Plaines west to 9th Avenue

  1. Thanks for the shout out for Maywood’s own Braun’s Paint for the hardening agent! It’s so important to do business with our own home town businesses. To any readers wanting to go to Braun’s, they are not open on weekends, but if you call them during the week, and discuss when you can and need to stop by, they are very accommodating. Try them!
