Waste Management has been our trash/recycling provider since November, 2019. We still receive many calls about the proper disposal of items. Following is a list of commonly asked questions of proper disposal:•Leaves: In autumn, rake onto the headland (area between curb and sidewalk), not in the street. Leaves in the street will flow into the storm drain inlets and cause potential flooding in your neighborhood.•Appliances: Household appliances such as stoves, washers, dryers, hot water tanks etc. can be placed out weekly with your trash as they will be picked up by the DPW for metal recycling.•Grass clippings/yard waste Bagged and placed INSIDE of your trash tote. Extra bags will not be picked up by Waste Management as they utilize the hydraulic arm only.•Branch: Small amounts can be placed inside of your trash tote. Large amounts must be bundled/tied securely and will be picked up by the DPW on Thursdays, our regular trash day. They must be no longer than 4’ in length when bundled.•Tires: Can only be disposed at a recycling facility. The closest facility is Geiter Done at 300 Greene Street in Lovejoy. •Construction Material: Waste Management does not take such material. It can be disposed of at the Eastside Transfer Station on Richard Drive (near Big Lots on South Ogden). There is a per tonnage charge for disposal. Another option is to purchase a temporary dumpster or “bagster” at various retailers. After filling, call Waste Management and they will retrieve- there is a cost to purchase the bag and dispose of it, depending on weight. •Bulk Items: Household items that include furniture, mattresses, box springs etc. will be picked up by Waste Management monthly. The bulk pickup day for the Village of Sloan will be on the fourth full week of the month and is posted on the sign in front of Village Hall. All mattresses, box springs and toilets must be bagged or completely wrapped to protect workers when picking up. For further information, please contact Waste Management at 1-800-972-4545 or Village Hall.
