Residential Refuse Changes

Residents now have the option of curbside collection for their refuse. The Village asked residents interested in the curbside program to select their service level option and container size between December 2020 and March 2021. 


Once you receive your new container, you may place old containers you no longer wish to use at the curb during the month of June: please tape a note that is visible on the lid that reads “Public Works Pick Up.” You may keep your old container and use it for other purposes if you wish.

Curbside service will begin after you receive your container on your currently scheduled refuse day.
