LANDFILL NEWS

The Vanguard Landfill is now a Transfer Station .

The village will still pick up garbage on Tuesdays. 

As always, please have your garbage out by the curb by 7 AM on Tuesdays.

 

Although subject to change, it looks likely that, starting in June:

  1. Only garbage that would fit in a garbage bag will be picked up .
  2. The Transfer Station will only accept regular household waste.
  3. Large items (mattresses, couches etc) will probably not be accepted at the Transfer Station. There may be opportunities to drop these off on a seasonal rotation in the future.
  4. As always, the village will not pick up recycling that is placed in the garbage.
  5. The bins at the landfill will be emptied on an “as needed” basis by Triways. The less we have to call them, the less the bill to the village will be for this service. Diverting waste from the Transfer Station will save residents money in the end.
  6. In an effort to encourage Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: please compost in a compost container on your property. Please put yard waste in the compost by the rinks. Please make full use of the recycling opportunities in the village. Please consider donating clothing, toys, furniture, and other items in good shape, rather than putting them in the landfill.

Thank you for your understanding as the village navigates this transition.

Garage Sale

The community-wide garage sale is on July 24, 2021 from 10 AM to 4 PM.  The Vanguard Coop will be selling a hot dog lunch at the Coop shed from 11 AMN to 1 PM. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Effective immediately and until further notice, there will be a fire ban on all open flres, including fire pits and burn barrels. Please use extreme caution as the risk for fires is very high in our area. Thank you.
