Back To News Listing GARBAGE PICKUP | Saturday, October 24, 2020
The Village of Colfax recently had an issue with someone ILLEGALLY dumping construction material into one of the business dumpsters.  The Village Clerk received a called from Allied Waste regarding this stating they would not dump the dumpster in question unless the business paid to have it dumped.  NO CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL can be picked up by the garbage person - they will be fined at the landfill if this is found on their truck.  NO CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL, PAINT CANS (unless empty and dried out), AIR CONDITIONERS, TIRES, YARD WASTE will be picked up by the garbage people.

THE BUSINESS PEOPLE OF THE VILLAGE OF COLFAX HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN DUMPSTERS AND WHEN OTHER PEOPLE PUT THEIR GARBAGE IN THE DUMPSTERS THE BUSINESS PEOPLE HAVE NOWHERE TO PUT THEIR OWN GARBAGE. 

ALL OF THE RESIDENTS OF THE VILLAGE OF COLFAX HAVE GARBAGE SERVICE PICKUP EACH MONDAY AND BASICALLY EXCEPT WHAT I HAVE NAMED ABOVE THEY PICKUP EVERYTHING INCLUDING ALL BULK ITEMS - COUCHES, CHAIRS, TABLES, ETC. 

ANYONE CAUGHT PUTTING ANYTHING IN THE DUMPSTERS WITHOUT PERMISSION OF THE OWNERS WILL BE CHARGED WITH THEFT OF SERVICES AND WILL BE ARRESTED.  ANYONE WHO DOES NOT LIVE IN THE VILLAGE OF COLFAX THAT BRINGS GARBAGE INTO THE VILLAGE AND LEAVES IT AT ANY RESIDENCE WILL BE CHARGED WITH THEFT OF SERVICES AND WILL BE ARRESTED.
