Garbage pickup is on Friday morning and garbage should be out at the curb by 6am. Per Village Ordinance, garbage totes should be removed from curb within 24 hours. If there is a holiday (New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas) on a weekday, garbage pickup will be on Saturday. Each Unit must pay for Garbage, unless the Board has approved an exception.
The Village of Shabbona has contracted with Northern Illinois Disposal Services (Contractor) for our Garbage, Recycling and Yard Waste, January 1, 2018 – Dec 31, 2022.
Garbage and Recycling Containers: Weekly curbside unlimited collection of Residential Waste with a 95 gallon cart provided by Contractor and weekly curbside unlimited collection of Recycling Materials with a 65 gallon cart provided by Contractor. Both the 95 gallon cart and the 65 gallon cart are provided by Contractor free of charge for the use by each Residential Property Owner/Tenant. Both the 95 gallon cart and the 65 gallon cart shall remain the property of Contractor. Repair, maintenance, and replacement (if necessary) of the carts shall be the responsibility of Contractor unless there is obvious evidence of consumer abuse.
If the Residential Property Owner/Tenant has too much refuse or recyclables to be contained by the supplied carts, additional resident supplied containers may be used, provided the containers do not exceed 32 gallons in size and 50 lbs in weight per each container. Resident may also contact NI Disposal and contract with them for additional totes. Garbage bags may be set out as well. NO LOOSE GARBAGE. If you have cans with other company logo’s on them, they CANNOT be used.
Yard Waste: Yard Waste collection will begin on the first Friday (“Collection Day”) of April and cease on the last Friday of November of each calendar year. Residential Property Owners shall place Yard Waste in either the commonly used biodegradable brown yard waste bags, not to exceed 50 pounds in weight, or in a container, acquired at the expense of the Residential Property Owner, not to exceed 32 gallons in size and 50 pounds in weight. Any container used for Yard Waste should be designated by the Residential Property Owner with a large “X” placed on the side of the can, which is clearly visible to Contractor’s employee from the roadway. The Village will not be picking up yard waste/brush. If you have larger tree or bush branches, they will need to be cut down for NI Disposal to pick up. Residents will need to contact the Mayor to request approval for Village Public Works employees to do pick up.
Bulk Items: Collection of Bulk Items shall be unlimited for each Residential Property Owner. Contractor reserves the right to reject any Bulk Item(s) in its sole discretion which are excessively large, may not qualify as a Residential Waste, and/or is not within the definition of a Bulk Item. Upon such rejection, Contractor shall notify the Village of the reason for the denial, the date, and the address.
Christmas Tree Collection: Contractor shall collect discarded Christmas trees that are placed curbside during the first two scheduled collection days in January of each calendar year.
E-Waste Collection and the Annual Village Clean-up will be scheduled once each calendar year. Date will be announced on the Village website and in the April quarterly newsletter.
