Garbage Collection

Our waste haulers are MDC (815-568-7274). The fee is approximately $27.00 per month billed quarterly. Trash & recycling are picked up Wednesday mornings. Pickup after major holidays is the day following the normal pickup. Garbage cans can be put out the night before pickup and must be removed by Wednesday evening. There is unlimited garbage and recycling. Cans can be rented or you can use your own cans. One large item a week can be put out without a call or sticker. You must call for appliance pickup and a sticker will be required. It is illegal and dangerous to leave unused appliances in your yard. There are two leaf pickups in the fall. You put your leaves at the front of your yard and MDC vacuums the village. You will be notified as to the dates of the vacuuming. If you would like to clean your yard in the spring and summer and discard the yard waste, the yard waste stickers are available for $2.45 each and the waste must be put in paper yard waste bags purchased separately.
