2024 Garbage Schedule

Garbage & Recycling


The Village of Sherwood provides residential garbage/recycling services through a collection contract with GFL Environmental Disposal (customer service number is (920)687-2631).

In accordance with the Village’s contract GFL, refuse shall be placed for weekly collection in accordance with the following regulations.  They are intended to maintain efficient collection, minimize neighborhood nuisance and protect public health. 

Garbage/waste collection is typically collected every Friday early morning through the afternoon, except holidays.  In the event that a holiday takes place during the week, garbage collection will be picked up on the following day (Saturday).  Please see below to obtain a copy of the collection schedule:

Recycling Guidelines

In September 2015, the Village Board approved of the Eastshore Recycling Commission’s decision to incorporate single-stream collection countywide.  This change is mandated throughout the county, to encourage Calumet County residents to recycle more.  All homes will be required to rent the recycling cart (with no ability to stop/re-start service). 

Each Village residence will receive a recycling receptacle (cart) GFL— only one size of recycling cart (96-gallon) is offered.  No separate bagging of items in the cart is needed - just rinse out items (if needed) and toss in recycling bin.  

Items that can be put into the recycling bin include: cardboard, paper products, food boxes, mail, beverage cans, food cans, jars (glass and plastic), jugs, plastic bottle and caps (#1 through#7), and glass bottles.  Please refer to Calumet County Recycling's Residential Curbside Guide for more information.

Per Waste Management’s contract, recycle pick-up for the Village of Sherwood is split between the West side and the East side of the Village.  As a result, resident recycling will be collected every other week. 

Please see the map below to identify if you are considered on the east side  or west side of the Village.  (Residents are welcome to contact the Village Office for further information or assistance):
