Carol Stream residents are served by Flood Brothers Disposal & Recycling Systems Co., which has an exclusive franchise agreement with the Village to collect general refuse, yard waste and recycling from residents living in single-family homes and in multi-family rental communities. Aside from requiring a scavenger license, the Village does not regulate commercial or industrial property refuse collection. Additional recycling resources are available through the DuPage County online recycling guide and the recycling events page
