Garbage Collection Every Week

The Caledonia Village Board approved new carts for garbage collection.  With the new cart program, all trash must be contained in the new brown garbage cart.  Each household will receive four (4) free ‘special pickups’ per year for large items that do not fit inside the brown cart.  Residents must call our office to schedule a collection for large items.

Smaller size carts are available for both trash and recycling.  Please contact our office if you would like a smaller cart.

Additional carts are available for a fee.  Please contact our office if you would like additional carts.
