EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY – Advanced Disposal will no longer pick up Garbage/Recycling that is in bags loose on the ground.  All Trash MUST be in a container.  This is for the safety of their employees.

In an effort to streamline the recycling, hazardous waste, and garbage disposal information for our residents and businesses, Calumet County has recently launched a new website, www.calumetrecycles.com.

This site contains a variety of useful local recycling, garbage and medication disposal information, including a guide on how to use the curbside bins for residential recycling needs.

The 2018 event schedules for the hazardous waste disposal and the electronics/appliance collection are posted as well, as is the ability to schedule an appointment online for the hazardous waste events.

While an appointment for the hazardous waste events is required, the electronics collection does not require one.


The Village still offers weekly, manual garbage and recycling pick up for our residents. 

Pick ups are on Thursday mornings, so please have your stuff to the curb by 5 a.m. 

The Village does not provide garbage or recycling receptacles (at this time).  Garbage can be bagged and placed, in bags, on the curb or the bags can be placed into a receptacle. 

Please follow the recycling guidelines outlined in the above website www.calumetrecycles.com, as the product accepted/co-mingled is the same throughout the County. 

The only difference from the website, is that we have a weekly recycling pick up and the Village does not provide the receptacle.  Reminder:  No bags allowed with recycling!

Please note that the garbage & recycling schedule frequency and the transition from manual to automated pick up will likely change within the next few years & those changes will be communicated to the residents, as it happens.
