Sanitation & Recycling

The Town of Monon provides a recycling area located on 3rd Street just east of Caboose Park.  You can bring your paper, plastic, aluminum and/or glass products and place them in the appropriate containers.  The dumpsters are for cardboard only (please flatten boxes).  Thank you for recycling!

The city of Town of Monon contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection.

One large trash bin is provided for each residence.  Monthly cost of garbage collection is currently $13.40 per month.  This charge appears on your water bill.

Waste Management will pick up one large item per week per household.  Upholstered items and mattresses/box springs must be wrapped in plastic.  Furniture and mattress bags are available at the Town Hall for $5.00 each. Items must be under 50 pounds in weight or taken apart into section under that weight limit.

Pick up must be scheduled with Waste Management by Wednesday at 4:00 PM for pickup the same week.  Please contact the Town Hall and we will schedule a pick up.

Curbside garbage pick up is Friday mornings. If there is a holiday, trash pick up is delayed to Saturday.
