Garbage & Recycling
Waste Management’s Orchard Ridge Drop-Off Facility (W124N9355 Boundary Road) for Yard Waste, excess Recycling, and excess Garbage is open. Yard Waste Permits were mailed to property owners in January.
By state law, yard waste - such as grass clippings, leaves and tree branches, may not be put in the trash. There are four ways to dispose of these materials. For more information regarding yard waste disposal, please visit our Yard Waste Disposal webpage. Properly labeled invasive plant species (PDF) may be placed at the curb.
Public Works supervises the contracts for automated solid waste and recyclable collection. The Village contracts with Waste Management for this service.
Waste Management requires all garbage and recycling to be placed at roadside for pickup by 5:30 a.m. on your regularly scheduled day.
Beginning the week of January 6, 2020, garbage will only be collected by using the Waste Management provided garbage carts. Any additional garbage containers (not provided by Waste Management) or bags left for collection, will not be picked up and tagged. No loose trash will be accepted.
Waste Management staff work all holidays except New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. When one of these holidays falls on a weekday, residential collection will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week. If a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, there will be no delays.
For missed pickups of garbage and/or recycling, please contact Waste Management Customer Service or email your address, phone number, and regularly scheduled pick-up day ASAP email us or call 888-960-0008.
