2024 Germantown Hills Curbside Recycling

The cost of standard garbage collection will be on your sewer bill. Recycling is free and voluntary. Curbside recycling for Village of Germantown Hills residents is every other week.

Who is a resident? If you have Village connected sewer, then you live within the Village limits.

***All recycling materials must be INSIDE your container – cardboard must be broken down. If you need a second recycling tote, you may rent one for a small additional fee from GFL Disposal Company. Call them at 309-263-2390.***


Normal pickup days for standard garbage in Germantown Hills are every Monday and Wednesday.

Please have your bins at the curb by 6:00am.

If pick-up falls on a holiday, designated by the GFL holiday calendar, then the schedule shifts one day that week.
