Please place carts facing the street, handle towards your home (There are arrows and instructions on the lid).

When it is recycling week, place both of the carts facing the street  a minimum 3 feet apart from each other to facilitate removal

Village Residents have curbside pick up every week and recycling every other week. The specific dates for recycling pick up can be found on the recycling schedule below.  For further information on recycling locations please see Columbia County Solid Waste at:

Recyclables will be picked up every other Tuesday. Please place the recyclables in your "BLUE" Container at your curbside away from your regular garbage.


Columbia County Solid Waste request that all recyclables be placed in your "BLUE" container or a clear plastic bag. This means that all of your recyclable materials (glass, paper, plastic, tin, and cardboard) can be mixed together in one bag, as long as one person can easily lift the bag. Place garbage and recycling bags/containers at curb by 6:00 AM.  Garbage person must be able to tell which is garbage and which is recycling or they will not take the bags.  Clear garbage bags are available at Piggly Wiggly Stores and Walmart.

Brush Pick-up

Brush pick-up is on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Brush needs to be tied in bundles no longer than 6 feet and weighing less than 50 lbs. Only brush will be picked up - entire trees will not be picked up and is the responsibility of the homeowner to dispose of. Leaves need to be put in clear bags so the workers can clearly see the bags are leaves and not garbage. This is being done because the Village doesn't want to lose their privileges at the Town Dump, so please make sure to follow these rules and if you have any questions please feel free to contact the Village office.
