In accordance with Village Ordinance Chapter 186-4, (A.) No container or bag placed for collection shall exceed 50 gallons in capacity or 50 pounds in weight (B.) All rubbish placed for collection shall be placed in suitable containers… (C.) Any garbage or rubbish not placed for collection in accordance with the provisions of this chapter may be refused by collector (D.) All persons having solid waste, including recyclable materials, shall place the same in suitable containers not sooner than 24 hours prior to the regularly scheduled collection time, and no person shall permit solid waste or containers thereof to accumulate or remain at the curbline longer than 12 hours thereafter.

Pickup every other week. Pellitteri Waste Systems provides containers for recycling pickup. Recyclables can be placed curbside the night before, or prior to 6 a.m. on the scheduled day of collection.
