Garbage & Recycling
The Village contracts with GFL Environmental, a private hauler, for weekly collection of garbage and recycling.
Residents with new home builds need to call the Village Office at (920) 989-1062 x 0 to order collection service and carts. A prorated invoice will be mailed to cover services fees through the remainder of the calendar year. Future garbage & recycling service fees will appear on the next year's tax bill as a special assessment titled "Refuse/Garbage". The annual service fee for 2022 is $157.56/set of carts.
Residents moving into a pre-existing home do not need to contact the Village Office as the previous carts remain with the property.
Garbage & recycling carts may become damaged due to normal wear & tear. Call the Village Office at (920) 989-1062 x 0 if a cart needs repair or to report an issue.
