Keep Your Recycling Loose in the Cart

Keep Your Recycling Loose in the Cart
The Village would like to thank the many households who consistently sort recycled materials out of their garbage stream. Your help truly makes a difference in the amount that our community pays towards landfill costs and on the impact that our trash has on the environment. The Village would like to encourage more households to do the same.

In order to make recycling as easy as possible the Village would like to remind residents of how to recycle certain items.
