Waste Management

Garbage Stickers

Village Trash stickers are to be fastened to your trash bags prior to collection of the bags by County Waste. Stickers may be purchased at: 

Citgo (at the stoplight)

Stewart’s (Church St.)

Village Clerk’s Office (9am-1pm, M-Thurs)

Garbage Stickers are still available at Citgo and Stewart’s. You are also able to receive your trash stickers via mail if you leave a check in the lock box at the Village Clerk’s office along with your name, address, the amount of stickers and whether they are $2 or $3 stickers.

Garbage Pickup

County Waste https://www.county-wastecairo.com/residential/ picks up garbage and recyclables throughout the Village on Wednesday mornings, until about 1:00 pm. County Waste is doing single-stream recycling in the Village of Chatham. That means all recyclables can be mixed together. Garbage stickers are (orange) $2.00 for a 13 gal. bag or (pink) $3.00 for a 30 gal. bag.

Your garbage and recyclables should be placed at the curb in front of your residence no later than 6:00 am on Wednesday mornings to ensure that it will be picked up. There is no charge for recyclables. Paper, glass bottles, plastic recyclables, and cans may be placed together in a cart for recycling. County Waste provides carts for recyclables, or you can continue to use the cart you have. Questions about what you can place in cart?

Your garbage will not be picked up if:
– it is not bagged
– it does not have the correct sticker
– a 30 gal. bag has only a $2.00 sticker
– it weighs over 20 pounds

Holiday Schedule:  Pick-up will be one day later, on Thursdays, for the following major holidays:  New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Christmas Day unless posted differently on our Home Page.
