Recycling Center

The Village Board would like to bring a recycling drop off area back to Fall River.

We are considering the location to be at the old lagoon site. 

This would serve as the area for recycling
as well as continuing to be the site for dumping brush, grass and leaves.

The site will be open specific times.  We are considering Wednesdays from 3 PM to 7 PM and Saturdays from 8 AM to 1 PM.  The site would be available to Village residents only.

We are looking to our community for those that may be interesting in helping to monitor the site.
If you are interested, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 484-3525.

Sewer Utility Needs Your Help!

Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.

Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly, in the trash!
