The Wilchester neighborhood contracts with GFL, Inc. for solid waste collection and recycling. To ensure prompt and efficient garbage and recycling collection, please familiarize yourself with our collection guidelines below and attached.

Please pay close attention to GFL’s different guidelines attached for household waste, tree/yard waste, heavy trash and recycling. Out of courtesy to your neighbors, please do not leave curbside collection items at the curb for days at a time.

For instance, if your yard is maintained on Wednesdays or Saturdays AFTER pick up from GFL then it is discourteous to leave bags of yard waste on the curb until the following pick up day. It is acceptable for yards maintained on Tuesdays or Fridays for collection items to sit curbside for a day.

Heavy trash should be hauled to the curb early Saturday AM, it is not acceptable to leave heavy trash curbside overnight.

 Recycling should be placed curbside only on Wednesday mornings. Please do not place recycling bins out the night before in order to decrease the chances of loose recycling blowing out of the bins littering our streets.
