Waste Management, the Village residential refuse collector, provides a bulk item collection service to dispose of discarded materials which are too large to be handled by their regular refuse collection equipment.
Residents disposing of bulk items must notify Waste Management by phone at 1 (800) 796-9696 to request a bulk item pickup.
Residents must place all bulk items at the curbside for proper collection on their regular refuse collection day. There is no cost to the resident for this service. Collection is limited to one (1) bulk item, or one (1) cubic yard, whichever is larger. Waste Management may charge residents for any bulk items that exceed the limits set forth by the Village.
