The Village of McFarland contracts with Pellitteri Waste Systems for garbage and recycling collection. Trash and recycling is collected every week.

Container Sizes

New residents should contact the Public Works Department to obtain their containers. The following sizes are available to residents:

  • 64-Gallon: A resident is provided a trash and recycling container of this size unless a different size is requested.
  • 64-Gallon and 32-Gallon: For the cost of $96 per year, an additional 32-gallon may be acquired for weekly collection.
  • One 35-Gallon: Households that are able to make due with a single 32-gallon container are encourage to do so, as the Village receives a credit for the reduced service.
  • Two 35-Gallon: Residents who are physically unable to handle the larger 64-gallon containers may instead use two smaller 35-gallon containers.

When positioning containers, please remember the following:

  • Do keep a 24-inch separation between containers and other obstructions.
  • Do have containers ready by 6 am.
  • Do not overfill containers.
  • Do not place containers near or under overhanging obstructions.
