Recycling Notice:

If the recycle bins are full, do not continue to try to force your items in. All doors must be able to close. Do not put items on the ground or on top of the bins. That is considered illegal dumping, and you will be fined. If bins are full, please take your items back home with you and bring them back when the bins are not full.

One bin is switched out every day Monday through Friday.

Please remember to break down cardboard as much as possible.

The recycling area is under surveillance and video playbacks are watched when there is illegal dumping.

Please be respectful of the recycling opportunity that is provided. Continued illegal dumping will result in the Village ending the recycling program.

With the chance of heavy snow fall this coming weekend, the Village Maintenance Department asks that you please respect the snow routes. Please do not park along the routes in case they have to plow. Please remember that these are tow away zones and the Village has a towing contract for snow routes. Thanks again for making this process as safe and quick as possible.
