- 90-gallon for $19.83/month

- 35-gallon for $14.74/month
The garbage can exchange will take place in March, and the garbage rate change will take effect on April 1st, according to the Village of Grayslake website. If your garbage can is damaged, you may contact the Request for Service System anytime during the year to have it repaired or replaced.
