Recyclable Materials and Guidelines

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Public Services Department works to provide residents with an effective recycling program.  Recyclable materials are collected curbside once a week.

All recycling can be co-mingled and then is sorted at the recycling plant.  Materials should be placed loose in the Village provided cart and placed by the curb no later than 7:00am the day of collection.  

There are, however, materials the Village does not accept, even though they may be recyclable.  Please see the information below to determine what items the Village collects and which items are accepted by other entities (Partners in Recycling).
