December Recycle Schedule

Recycling dates will remain the same for the month of December. These days will be December 12th and 26th, 2020. 

Please remember to keep your garbage out of the recycling. It will be left in your recycling bin and it will be your responsibility for you to dispose of it.
Because of the dyes in the wrapping paper, it CAN NOT be recycled and will NOT be accepted. In years past everyone has done a fantastic job with this, so let’s keep up this trend!

Snow Removal

Please remember to keep your sidewalks clear of snow. Also try not to push the snow into the roadways. We do our best to clear the streets in the Village in a timely manner. Please keep in mind this is a one machine crew. As a result of clearing the streets, your driveway may need some extra shoveling. This is an unfortunate side effect so you can drive down the street. We appreciate your patience and help during this process.
