Refuse / Recycling
You have a uniform container recycling and trash collection program offered by your solid waste disposal provider, NuWay Disposal. Under this program, each single-family home and townhome unit is assigned a brown 95 gallon container with wheels for trash and a green 64 gallon container with wheels for recyclable materials

Both containers have lids to prevent wind from blowing trash and recyclable materials
throughout the community while the containers are waiting to be emptied by NuWay. New residents will have a recycling cart delivered to their home within four weeks after establishing their water and sewer service with the Village.

Refuse is collected every Tuesday and recycle pick-up is every other Tuesday.  Containers may be placed at the curb the night before or for early risers the morning of garbage day.  Containers should be taken away from the curb after Tuesday pickup and stored somewhere in, behind or alongside your house or garage.
