Refuse and Recycling Containers

The Village would like to remind residents to be mindful of mother nature when placing refuse and recycling containers out for pick-up. Strong winds, winter conditions, or even the neighborhood raccoon may cause your container to spill onto the roadway or your neighbors property. By ensuring the container is completely closed and placed on a level surface, these situations can be mitigated.For more information on the Village's refuse and recycling services, please visit or contact Joe Carey, Assistant Village Manager at
