Residential Refuse Pick-Up

DPW picks up residential refuse weekly.

DPW picks up your trash once a week based on the pick-up schedule. Please be considerate of your neighbors when placing your trash at the curb and help us maintain efficient, low cost service by adhering to the following guidelines when preparing and placing your trash out for pick-up:

  • Place trash between the sidewalk and the curb no earlier than 12:00 noon the day before and no later than 7:00 am the day of your regularly scheduled pick-up day
  • Remove containers from the curb within 12 hours after they are emptied
  • Trash must be placed in proper containers or bags
  • Containers shall be no larger than 32 gallons in size
  • Each container or bag shall weigh no more than 50 pounds each
  • Each bag shall be properly sealed
  • There is a limit of 12 standard 32 gallon cans or bags of refuse per week per pick-up
  • Containers and trash must not be stored in front of property, rather along side or in the rear of property out of public site
  • Landlords are responsible for the failure of tenants to comply with refuse rules and are responsible for all special pick-up fees
  • Refuse from outside the village is not allowed
  • You may request an extra trash pick-up if necessary for an additional charge by contacting the DPW to make special arrangements
