Waste, Blue Bag, and Organic Collection & Disposal
Waste, Recycling, and Organic Waste Collection and Disposal
Sunset Point contracts waste collection service to GFL Services. Collections are every other Monday alternating with Blue Bag recycling year round including holidays. Organic waste is picked up starting the first Monday in May until November 1.
Place carts at the roadside by 7:00 a.m. for collection. The lids MUST be fully closed and bins placed at least 4 feet apart. The driver does not get out of the truck as this is a fully automated service. Please remove carts off the road as soon as possible. Stolen Bins will be replaced at a cost to the resident of $100.00/per bin. Replacement bins will only be issued once payment is received by the Village.
The Village encourages residents to participate in the blue bag recyling program, to reduce amount of unnessary items filling the landfill. See below for more information on what items can go in the blue bag. Blue bag pick up alternates with waste collection pick up.
All waste must be bagged and placed in securely lidded waste receptacles to prevent animal access. Organic waste should not be bagged. Organics in bags will not be picked up.
