Garbage & Recycling

It is very important that the Blue Garbage Bins are only used for bagged household garbage. Leaves and other yard waste can be taken to the village leaf and tree compost area. The garbage waste program is one of the largest costs that the village has and ensuring that leaves and trees are disposed of correctly will help ensure that the garbage costs remain as low as possible.

Welcome to the Resort Village of Big Shell, the place for fun, family and friends.
