Place your garbage out by 7:00 am on your collection day.
Recycling occurs every two weeks on your regular garbage day. Residents can purchase 'see-through' bags (preferably blue) or use clearly marked re-usable conatiners (ie. blue box) for recycling. Place your clean, dry recyclables in the same bag or container (no glass accepted!). On your recycling week place out as many clear bags or containers of recycling as you like. Once picked up all the items are recycled including the blue bag itself.
Place out your recycling by 7:00 am on your collection day with your garbage bags.
For a list of where you can take household items for reuse, recycle or safe disposal, please review the 2018 Reuse, Recycle & Safe Disposal Guide.
Yard and Garden Waste Collection
Food waste is not collected.
Place yard waste in clearly marked reusable containers or in compostable paper bags (no plastic bags). Bundle prunings with string ( not wire, nylon cord or plastic banding). Unlimited amounts of properly packaged yard waste will be accepted.
Free "YARD WASTE ONLY" stickers are available to place on reusable containers (like a garbage can you want to use only for yard waste). Contact the Village office to get a free sticker.
