Garbage & Recycling Collection
Johns Disposal provides weekly garbage and bi-weekly recycling collections. For more information on these collections, click here. The Village will accept Cardboard and Paper Recycling as well as Drain Oil until further notice.
Cardboard and Paper Collection
The Big Bend Department of Public Works is a collection point for recyclables-specifically cardboard. The “DPW” Department has a cardboard recycling dumpster on-site 365 days per year which will accept as much cardboard and paper as you can supply. Please call DPW Superintendent Eric Pedersen for more information at 262.662.4903.
There is a dumpster available for village residents to use at the municipal garage, available every third Saturday from 7:00am to 11:00am April – September.
The dumpster will not accept tires, yard waste, hazardous materials, chemicals, paint, brush or electronics. At the present time we don’t take refrigerators.
*You must be a Big Bend resident and have a dump card. Dump cards are $40 Annually or $10 per use and are available at Village Hall.
