Per a recently approved three-year, exclusive contract, J and J Refuse Inc. will be Silver Lake's trash hauler from April 1 through March 31, 2010.

J and J will collect trash on Fridays and the first collection date will be April 6.

On holiday weeks, the trash collection will take place on Saturdays. J and J will send out a letter to customers detailing the options and the prices.

J and J Refuse Inc. is planning to charge $13.77 a month for full service with recycling for curbside pickup with a uniform container, $14.17 a month for full service with recycling without the uniform container for curbside pickup; and $34.15 per month for full service with recycling setback pickup without the uniform container. J and J will charge $22.95 a month for setback pickup for senior and disabled residents.

Contrary to what was reported in last week's Falls News-Press, residents wishing to have a uniform container for full service setback pickup must pay an extra $2.50 per month.

For special collection full service with recycling, J and J will charge $14.85 a month for curbside pickup and $35.80 each month for setback pickup.

For this service, residents wishing to have a uniform container must pay an extra $2.50 per month for either curbside or setback pickup.

For bag service with recycling, J and J will charge $4.53 per bag for curbside pickup and $6.18 per bag for setback collection.

Residents have until March 1 to select what type of service they want.

If residents do not make a selection by March 1, village officials said they would be initially enrolled in special collection full service with recycling for the curbside pickup option. Residents should contact J and J at 1-800-201-0005 or by e-mail at kgoodrich@jandjrefuse.com with their selection.
