Garbage Pickup & Recycling

Garbage and recycling services are a great resource for the Town of Silver Cliff. Please help our small town keep costs to a minimum by not bringing items from out of town. Please do not dump these items in our beautiful woods, please do not leave garbage where animals can get into it. Let's keep Silver Cliff beautiful!

Garbage pick up is the first, third and 5th Wednesday from December 1 through end of March. Begining in April 1 through end of November, garbage is picked up every Wednesday.

Please have your garbage set out in animal proof container by 7:30 a.m.

Please note that it is the landowner's responsibility to clean up any garbage that gets strewn about prior to pick up! For those that are only in Silver Cliff for the weekend, please take your garbage home with you or to the dumpsters located in the Silver Cliff Recycling Area. This will prevent animals from scattering the garbage.

Recycling is the first/third Sunday from 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and the second/fourth Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. The Recycling center is closed on holidays.

Recycling Area is located behind the Silver Cliff Town Hall on County I.

The recycling attendant is available during hours of operation to make that recyclables are disposed of in the proper manner.
