Recycling Guidelines


Where To Place Your Garbage Cans

Where you place your garbage and recycling containers can make the collection process easier for everyone involved. Containers should be placed 4 (four) feet apart to allow ample space for the equipment to pick up the containers. In the winter, be sure to clear snow from the area where you are placing your containers.

Containers are provided by Harter’s and are the only containers that should be used for garbage and recycling. Place the containers at the end of your driveway the evening before, or by 5 a.m. the morning of, collection. Do not leave the container at the end of your driveway for more than 12 hours before collection or 24 hours after collection. The Village of Maine ordinance also requires that garbage and recycling containers be stored in a location where they are not visible from the roadway and are not in the road right of way.
