Waste Management News
Waste Management (WM) uses fully automated vehicles which results in stricter adherence to regulations. No extra bags or loose debris can be placed outside of your trash or recycling totes. All regular household trash, grass clippings and yard debris must be bagged and placed inside of your tote. Materials may not protrude and the lid must close securely to prevent rodent access. Totes should be placed at curbside by 6:00am on the day of collection. Totes must be located within 2’ of the curb and with enough room for the hydraulic lift arm to operate. If you live on the parking side of the street, please place trash and recycling totes on your driveway apron to prevent them from being blocked by vehicles. Waste Management will pick up ONLY TWO (2) bulk items per address monthly. Bulk items consist of furniture, carpet/padding (cut in 4’ lengths or less, no wider then 18” and securely taped), boxsprings, mattresses, and toilets (which all must be wrapped in plastic or bagged). Large plastic bags are available for purchase at various local home building stores. Items NOT ACCEPTED: microwaves, air conditioners, concrete, construction material, tires, televisions and computers. WM has seen an increase of items placed for disposal in the recycling totes that are NOT ACCEPTABLE such as food, plastic bags, rugs, bedding, clothing, carpet, hoses, holiday lights, extension cords, clothes hangers, napkins, plates, cups, tissues, foam/plastic to-go containers, yard waste, wood, concrete, construction debris, blow up pools, auto parts and hazardous waste. Clothing, bedding, gently used household items can be donated to the Hearts for the Homeless bin in Village Hall parking lot. For any questions on what is acceptable BULK or RECYCLABLES please contact WM Customer Service at 1- 800-972-4545.
