Residents in Hales Corners take great pride in their community and environment. Comprehensive State Recycling laws were enacted in 1994 requiring residents to recycle.
GFL Environmental collects recyclables on a bi-weekly basis. GFL Environmental has exclusive control over recyclables placed curbside under Village Ordinance. Scavengers will be prosecuted under Section 14.23 of the Village Code.
Plastics #1-7, PS foam packaging, glass bottles, glass jars, and steel, tin or aluminum cans, newspaper, magazines, phone books, junk mail, mixed paper and cardboard should be placed in the 95-gallon carts. Rinse out all containers. Flatten cans and plastic bottles. All caps and lids should be discarded with your trash.
DO NOT RECYCLE: plastic bags, aluminum foil, packing material, motor oil containers, frozen food boxes, and any other paper product that has been soiled with food such as paper plates or pizza boxes.
