Trash Removal / Waste Management


 Waste Management Garbage Info.           Waste Management Recycle Info.



If you have alley access the garage and recyclables, both go in the alley.

Street pick-up is for those properties that do not have alley access.

Recyclables go in the green recycle containers only, and not in boxes or containers of your choosing. Recyclable containers can be picked up at the Administration Office.

There is a four bag, four can limit, garbage cans cannot be larger than 35 gallons.

All Cardboard and cardboard boxes should be FLATTENED AND BUNDLED together.  Cardboard boxes that are NOT flatten will NOT be picked up.

Federal work rules prohibit drivers from picking up larger containers, and the driver will not reach into a can to remove stuck bags or garbage.

Larger containers that can be lifted by the truck can be rented from Waste Management. Information is available at the Village Billing Office or via the link below.

We appreciate your co-operation in these matters as they affect the health and safety of the workers, and insure garbage is properly collected.

Thank you,
