Effective August 1, 2022, the City of McHenry will be changing its solid waste hauler to Flood Brothers Disposal, our family-owned and operated company. This new contract will continue to allow residents the option to use stickers for refuse or to have two-wheeled cart service. Unlimited yard waste collection will now be included in the services—stickers will no longer be required on yard waste.

Your collection day will remain the same!

Residents that currently participate in the two-wheeled cart program will be able to use their existing carts. They are being retained from the current provider and relabeled by Flood Brothers for a smooth, sustainable transition.

***Flood Brothers asks residents to leave their two-wheeled carts at the curb after August 1, 2022, on collection day to allow for relabeling and recycling sticker to be applied. A resident that wishes to change cart sizes or a resident on the sticker program who would like to set up two-wheeled cart service, please contact Flood Brothers.
