Garbage & Recycling Guidelines

GARBAGE - All garbage must be placed in the cart(s) with a gray lid and must be placed for pickup on Mondays by 7:00 a.m. While bagging your garbage is not required, we recommend you continue to do so to avoid smelly messes in the carts. If you are moving, you need to use a dumpster.

  • • Your cart should be within 18 inches of the curb with the arrows on the lid pointing to the street/curb. Carts cannot be placed on the street. If there is snow, please clear an area in the terrace, or leave the carts at the end of your driveway.
  • • To avoid damage to property, place the cart at least 3 feet away from mailboxes, lampposts and other fixed objects.
  • • Place your cart on as level a surface as possible, but away from low hanging tree branches.
  • • Place carts at least 3 feet away from each other.
  • • Close lids prior to pick-up. Lids should be closed on the carts for driver identification and in order to stop material from spilling or blowing away.
  • • Carts not properly placed will be tagged and not picked up.

RECYCLABLES - All recyclables must be placed in the cart(s) with the blue lid. Items should be rinsed clean.

For list of acceptable and unacceptable items, see the recycling guidelines.

HEAVY REFUSE COLLECTION - Large Items: break items down to fit in gray cart. For items that don’t fit in the cart, call Advanced Disposal to arrange for pickup and cost of disposal. Stoves, washers, dryers, water heaters, car parts, bath tubs: call Advanced Disposal for cost and to arrange for pick up.  Bulky items can be saved for our annual Bulky Waste pickup in early June (see the bulletin board, village calendar, or village Facebook page for notice of Bulky Waste pickup date.)

CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS - Small amounts of construction materials may be placed in the gray cart. If you have a large amount of materials, arrange for a dumpster. Contractors are not allowed to put waste by the curb.
