Bulletin Board:


During the Village Board Meeting on October 7th, the Village
of Elkhart Board Members voted to end its recycling program
effective October 29th.

The primary reason for this decision was due to its misuse.  
Regardless of posted rules, individuals continued to leave
plastic bags and glass both in and outside the containers.  This
continuous disregard of policies has forced us to take this

As for alternative recycling options, towns in close proximity
to our Village do not allow outside recycling.  This

direct you to a search in Google Maps that may assist you in
finding a potential facility.

The Village YARD WASTE Burn Pile is open 7AM-7PM on Wednesdays
and Saturdays
.  Both days are weather permitting.
Please DO NOT throw your yard waste over the gate when the area is
closed.  Thank you!

Referrer to
Ordinance 2019-1 for a list of prohibited items.



The President and several trustees have received complaints from
concerned citizens about dog and other animal waste being left in their
yards and on public property.  Do NOT leave your animal’s waste on
property that you are not responsible for.  Pick it up!  Carry your
“pooper scooper” or a bag and take it home with you.  This is breaking
the ordinance and you will be fined.  If you don’t mow it or scoop snow
off of it – do NOT leave your animal’s waste there.
