Please put neat piles of brush on the shoulder of the road (inside the white line) for easy access. Piles need to be parallel to the road.

No grass clippings or other compost will be removed at this time.

Residents are responsible for road cleanup if debris ends up in the roadway.

Winter Parking:
No parking is allowed on all village streets
between the hours of  3:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m.

Recycling pickup is bi-weekly. Each resident has been supplied with a recycling bin to be utilized for this service.

Modern will pick up scrap metal and white goods (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners). Please remember that all items containing freon must have certified removal and tagged as such. You then must call Modern to schedule a date to have your items picked up.

Do not flush “flusable wipes”!

Believe it or not, “flushable” wipes really should not be flushed down your toilet. Flushable wipes are bad because they don’t break down as fast as toilet paper when they are flushed, meaning they back up your sewer. Even if they flush, they cause issues in your actual piping. It’s even worse if they make it through your private sewer lines.

Today’s low-flow, high-efficiency toilets have such good flushing power, you can get a ton of things down them and even if it doesn’t cause problems in the household system, it gets into the sewer system and the problems arise there.

Please DO NOT flush any type of wipe down your toilet. They clog the pumps in the lift station resulting in the pumps failing and costly repairs to the Village.  If there are any questions, please contact the DPW at 745-7839.  Thank you!
