Garbage Collection / Recycling



Waste Management has been contracted to provide garbage and recycling pickup services for the Village of Whiting.

2023 Whiting Calendar

2024 Whiting Calendar

During Holiday weeks, garbage is picked up on Saturday instead of Friday.  The main Holidays are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.


There are times when only one truck is used to pick up both containers.  There is a bevel in truck to separate garbage from recyclables.

Please put garbage and recycling bins out by 5:00 a.m.  Carts must be at least 4 ft apart from each other.

As a reminder Village residents can only put out one garbage and one recycling cart each week (per the Village’s contract with Waste Management). They will not empty more than one garbage or one recycling cart per residence per week. All items must fit in the bins.  No extra bags will be picked up.

If a cart is damaged or a wheel falls off, Waste Management will repair or replace cart for you. All requests need to be made through the Village Clerk. Contact us at 715-341-2742
