Frequent Questions

Plastic Bags - Sorry but we do not take plastic bags. Contact your local grocery store as they might.

Mattresses - We do not take mattresses. Contact your trash hauler as many will take them.

Paint - We do not take paint of any kind at KNIB, however the Household Hazardous Waste Site at 3333 Kishwaukee will accept oil based paint ONLY. Please contact your trash hauler about latex paint. Most will take the dried up paint cans, but they do have specific rules.

**Information on our hours or last minute closings due to weather can be found on our website.
