(DO NOT call the Public Works Department for trash service or questions.)

All trash cans containing household trash, yard waste  or recycling must be placed outside no later than 7:00am the day of scheduled pick up (or after 3pm the day before).  All trash cans must be put away where they cannot be seen from the street after the pick up has been done.  

If you place broken glass in your household garbage, please make sure to wrap all sharp edges to prevent punctures to trash bags and possible injury to the workers.

Sharps (razor blades, syringes, etc.) MUST be placed in a container prior to being placed in with household garbage to prevent punctures to trash bags and possible injury to the workers.

At the March 11th Council meeting, the Village Council approved an amendment to Chapter E of the Whispering Pines Code of Ordinances pertaining to the placement of trash cans containing household garbage and recycling. The current ordinance requires that cans containing household garbage and / or recycling be placed near the garage or front of the house and not curbside. Effective July 1st, the new wording allows residents the option of continuing to place such cans near or adjacent to the front of the house or garage, in a manner clearly visible from the street, or placing the cans curbside. All cans containing yard debris must be placed curbside. Cans placed curbside must be removed from view the same day as pickup and cannot be placed in view of the street prior to 3 p.m. the day before pickup. Another change to the ordinance is that residents will be allowed to utilize 45-gallon size trash cans for all pick-ups. The current wording requires a maximum size of 32- gallon for yard debris and recycling. For additional information, please visit the Village website ( or contact Village Hall, 910- 949-3141.
