Advanced Disposal Recycling Carts and Garbage Bins

For more information, click here: Trash & Recycling Cart Information

Garbage & Recycling collection in the Village of Mount Pleasant has switched to fully automated collection for both trash and recycling. In order to facilitate this change, a wheeled trash cart will be delivered to your residence along with a wheeled cart for collection of all single stream recyclable items. 

Single-stream recycling allows you to place all recyclable commodities, such as paper, cardboard, steel, plastic, tin, aluminum and glass, into one collection cart. Single-stream recycled items require loose placement within the collection cart. 

In order to assist persons with disabilities, the Village of Mount Pleasant has contracted with Advanced Disposal to provide Walk Up Service to persons who qualify. 

Qualified residents must:

1.    Be unable to wheel their cart to the curb for collection.
2.    Have no one else who can assist them, such as a spouse or other live-in family member or a personal assistant.
3.    Be certified by a physician as needing assistance.
4.    Fill out and return the required request for exemption form
