Village of Marvin Solid Waste and Recycling FAQs
You Had Questions, We Have Answers

In response to questions regarding the standardization of solid waste collection, we wanted to reply to all the questions we received in the last couple weeks.

When will Village services start? When do I need to cancel my current service?
Village services will begin on April 1, 2022; do NOT cancel your current service until March 31, 2022. We will send more reminder notices out before the official switch.
 
I use more than one trash bin now; will I be able to receive another one?
Yes, no worries! Each household will receive one (1) 96-gallon container for household waste and one (1) 96-gallon container for recycling. You will have the ability to add bins and services under an additional subscription fee which will be billed directly to the homeowner.

Will Yard Waste be included and what are the standards?
Yes! Council has heard residents’ voice to add yard waste. There will be no additional charge for the first year (April 1, 2022-June 30, 2022); rates will still be $61 on your 2022 tax bill. For the 2023, we will have to reassess costs and notify residents of any changes at that time. Service will include plant material such as leaves, pine straw, grass clippings, tree branches and brush, flowers and shrubbery trimmings and/or other yard debris. Bagged leaves and loose brush (brush cannot exceed 6 feet long by 3 inches in diameter and cannot exceed eight cubic feet in quantity). Yard waste must be debagged at the curb by the contractor before placing into collection vehicle. We are working with vendor to see if biodegradable bags will be acceptable.

I am disabled and cannot take my containers to the road, can you help?
Yes; we will have a process for assistance for residents medically unable to take carts to the road.
I have seen some vendors mix recycling and household waste; is this allowed with the contract with Marvin?
Absolutely not! We take pride in our communities’ efforts to have a reduced carbon footprint. In the event any resident sees this activity taking place after April 1, 2022; please take photos and report to Village Hall immediately. The Village has penalties in place to charge hefty fines for this activity.

What do I do if my Homeowners Association (HOA) currently has my solid waste fees already included in my HOA dues?
Every Marvin household will be assessed this fee. The way we will able to keep costs so low and standardize services was by including all Marvin households. If your HOA currently charges for Solid Waste, residents will need to work with their respective HOAs to address that issue. Most practical options to HOAs would be to reduce their fees respective to the amounts currently being charged and/or find another commonly accepted use for those funds within their HOA; either way, this is an issue to be taken up at the HOA Board level.
Sometimes I need an extra pickup for a bulk item (like a mattress, computer, or couch); how will I be able to get this addressed after April 1, 2022?
You have a few options; we will have a free once per year event where residents can bring unwanted items to Village Hall and we will assist in disposal. Items such as, but not limited to, appliances, stoves, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, trash compactors, water heaters, furnaces and window unit air conditioners, large bulky boxes, items of furniture, chairs, tables, couches, mattresses, cabinets, dressers; electronics such as computers, televisions, and printing devices. Other option will be to schedule a pickup with the vendor directly who will then bill and collect from customer upon request.
