Warren Township Highway Department has arranged for special pick-up services with Waste Management to assist residents in disposing of flood damaged items as a result of localized and regional flooding. This includes residents with 5 digit addresses located within the jurisdiction of Warren Township Highway Department.
Residents that have experienced flood damage and are looking to dispose of flood damaged items must register for this special pick-up service by contacting the Warren Township Highway Department Flood Hotline at 847-505-7656.
PLEASE NOTE: Only flood damaged items will be accepted as part of this special pick-up service.
Special pick-up services will begin on Monday, July 17th and run through Friday, July 21st. Pick-ups will occur on residents’ regularly scheduled pick-up days, if possible. We ask residents with non-flood related large bulk items to hold off on disposal for the week of July 17th – 21st to accommodate the special pickup from homes impacted by the flood.
Residents participating in this special pick-up service should follow these preparation steps for the disposal of damaged items:
- Debris must be contained in cans or bags not exceeding 33-gallons in size and no heavier than 45 lbs. each.
- Debris may be bundled; however, cannot exceed 45 lbs. in weight and 4 feet in length and no wider than 2 feet in diameter.
- Carpeting must be rolled, taped, or tied. Carpet, after being rolled and tied, should be no longer than 4 feet in length and no wider than 2 feet in diameter and weigh no more than 45 lbs. each.
- Larger items such as damaged furniture may be placed at the curb adjacent to garbage/recycle containers.
To register, please call the Warren Township Highway Department Flood Hotline at 847-505-7656 during business hours (7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday).

Residents impacted by the floods can come to this one-stop, resource center in Round Lake Beach to meet with trained counselors for resources, obtain housing and insurance information and other assistance from team representatives. Also, the MARC will offer free in-kind donations. There will be translators available.

Friday, July 21, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Lunch and dinner will be provided to clients.
Saturday, 9 a.m. – noon, Snacks will be provided to clients.
Drop-Off Donation Site
To help ensure victims/clients receive the items they need, the Salvation Army has created a toll-free Donation Hotline (888-369-1349) for donors to call and get information on the specific items needed. Callers will be asked to identify what items they have to donate and if they are not useable items specifically for this flood, the Salvation Army will decline receiving the donation. If they are non-perishable items that can be used in this disaster (or future ones), they will be given an Authorization Code and times the MARC is open to accept their donation. With the Authorization Code, they may drive to the MARC at their convenience any of the three days and drop off their items with designated Donation Management personnel. Callers can leave a message and get a call back should they call after hours or during times of heavy call volume.
