Refuse and Recycling Pickup

Through Olson Sanitation the village now offers residents single sort recycling.  Single sort recycling refers to a system in which all  paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck. In single-stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables.
