Department Public Works
Recycling Procedures: All recycling will only be picked up on Wednesdays, except as noted during holiday weeks. We utilize facilities that accommodate single-stream recycling which means all materials to be recycled can be put in the same container. Sanitation crews will pick up paper, cardboard, glass, plastic & cans from containers placed at curbside. Paper does not have to be bundled; however, it should be placed in a manner that does not allow it to blow around. Cardboard boxes do not need to be crushed; boxes may be placed inside other boxes. Rinse out glass, plastic and tin cans prior to placing these items in the container to prevent rodent infestation and to avoid contaminating the recycling load. All recycling MUST be free of regular garbage or it will not be taken. For more information on recycling program, click the attached. Recycling Procedures
Following these procedures are earth friendly, will decrease the volume of waste that ends up in landfills and will save tax dollars.
Sanitation cannot lift cans that are over 32-gallons in size. Oversize garbage cans are not permitted and Notices of Violation will be issued for oversize cans.
Recyclables are picked up curbside throughout the Village every Wednesday except during some holiday weeks (see holiday garbage schedule).
