Garbage Pickup

We met with Waste Management at the most recent board meeting on April 11th, 2023 regarding concerns about missed pickups for garbage. Here are some details from that meeting:

– First, the trash cans have to be placed in a certain manner in order for the new trucks to pick up the bins. The cans must have the lid opening portion facing the roadway as seen in the attached image on this post. If there are multiple can set out, they must be at least three (3) feet apart for the same reasons.

– If you have anything other than the 96 gallon trash bin set out it will not be picked up. Additional bins are available by calling Waste Management directly and requesting one. There is a monthly fee billed directly to you for each additional bin beyond the first one.

– If your trash was set out correctly and on time (by 7am) and then not picked up, please notify the Village as soon as possible. You can either use the report service issues form on the website or call the hall directly. If no one knows it was missed there is not a lot that can be done. If the truck is still around they may still be able to get it, if not they will schedule a pickup as soon as possible.

If there are any other questions or concerns please let us know.

Thank you.
