Green Package Curbside Composting Program

The Village came to an agreement with Waste Management to initiate the Green Package curbside composting program in 2019. The program includes a dedicated 35-gallon cart for organics in addition to residents’ regular trash and recycling carts. The program consists of collections made every week from April 1 – November 30 and every other week from December 1 – March 31, and the cost of the program will be $12.50 per month, billed in addition to residents’ regular trash and recycling bill.

Pickups during the winter months (December 1 - March 31) will be on Tuesdays, and from April 1 - November 30 pickups will be on the same day as residents’ regular garbage pickup day.
