Bloomington Waste Disposal
Bloomington has joined the ranks of more than 72 percent of cities nationwide that have implemented organized garbage and recycling services. The program reduces the number of garbage trucks on your collection day, mitigates air and noise pollution, minimizes the wear and tear on the roadways and, in most cases, saves each household money. All residential garbage and recycling collection is coordinated through the City.
