Weekly Curbside Pick-Up of Household Trash and Recyclables
Green For Life Environmental (GFL), has been contracted by the Village of Denmark to collect residential trash and recyclables. Village funded residential pick up services are provided to single-family residents and apartments with three or less rental units. Businesses and owners of larger residential units should contact a trash hauler to arrange for pick up service or for a dumpster.
GFL provides a green 18 gallon recycling bin to help property owners to contain their recyclables. If you recently moved into the Village of Denmark and the former property owner/renter did not leave the bin behind, please call Village Hall at 863-6400 to request a bin. Residents are allowed to put out five (5) thirty gallon trash bags each week
Please remember to have your trash and recycling out by 6 a.m. to ensure pick up.
How to handle materials that are acceptable.
Each week you will put out your bagged household trash and alternating recycling products to your curbside area of your home. Please review the schedule for Pick up services for 2017 and 2018 available at Village Hall for the specific dates and to find out which week is for which type of recycling is being collected. Each year a new schedule for pick ups will be available at Village Hall.
For reference, the commingle products, clean glass, glass bottles, plastic bottles, aluminum and steel cans should be placed loose in your 18 gallon provided bin.
The paper products, paper bags, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, etc, should be placed in paper sacks, bundled or in cardboard boxes no larger than 20 gallons.
