Garbage Collection
About Garbage Collection Pick-Up
Garbage and rubbish are picked up by Waste Management from curbs and alleys once a week. When a scheduled pick-up falls on a holiday, collection will be made the following day. The current rate is $ 27.99 per month, which is shown on the water bills. Village ordinance requires all garbage be covered and not placed in paper bags or boxes for collection. The burning of leaves and garbage is prohibited. Village crews will remove tree branches from the parkway upon notice. For more information, call the Village at 708-345-0020.
