Garbage Pick-Up

Village Ordinance states that you may put your garbage out after 6:00pm on the night before your regular garbage pick-up day. Anyone who puts their garbage out prior to 6:00pm is subject to a fine. Garbage pick-up starts around 7:00am.

Garbage must be placed in a Village of Norridge black covered garbage cart. Each residence was issued a free garbage cart.  Additional carts are available for a fee.  Green recycling bins are available at the Norridge Village Hall. Each resident will receive one free bin. Additional bins are available for $20.00.

Your garbage cart(s), yard waste brown bag or container and recycling bin must be either on your parkway or on the curb. Do not put garbage directly onto the street. This will prevent any problems with snow removal or heavy rains. During snow removal carts may get knocked over or moved, so it is important to place them further away from the street.

Garbage Holiday

Listed below are the only holidays that garbage will not be picked up. If your regularly scheduled garbage pick-up falls during a garbage holiday week, garbage will be picked up one day later for the rest of that week. For example, if the holiday falls on a Monday, and your garbage pick up is a Monday, your garbage will be picked-up on Tuesday, Tuesday’s pick up will be Wednesday, etc., for the rest of the week. If your pick-up is on Friday, your garbage will be picked up on Saturday.

This schedule change applies for the following six holidays only:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Garbage will be picked up on your regularly scheduled day on all other National or State Holidays.
