The village’s new Garbage Disposal District (GDD) is a unique variation on single hauler village trash collection. It was designed to lower the cost of collection, reduce taxes and improve property values over time, and improve the environment and quality of life in the village. It also significantly reduces the cost of future road repaving. The GDD was patterned after a similar program in a nearby village adopted a few years earlier.
