Eagle Enterprises Recycling, Inc. has announced residents in the City of Galva will be allowed to have up to four extra bags of garbage at the curb for the collections on Dec. 26 and 28, and Jan. 2 and 4, for their extra trash generated because of the holidays.

Residents will be able to place up to six bags or cans at the curb without requiring an extra garbage sticker. All bags or cans must be 33-gallon size or smaller, and cannot exceed 50 pounds. Anything over six bags or cans will require an extra bag sticker that can be obtained at City Hall or the Eagle Enterprises office for $2. 

All large or heavy items (items that will not fit in a 33-gallon trash can or weigh over 50 pounds) will still require a large item sticker, which costs $7.50 at City Hall or Eagle Enterprises. 

Electronic devices that are banned from the landfill (TVs, computers, monitors, printers, video game consoles, scanners, VCRs, DVD players, keyboards, mice, fax machines, cable TV and satellite receivers) should be brought to Eagle Enterprises during business hours (6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays  — closed Dec. 23, 25 and Jan. 1). 

Check in at the office before unloading. There is no charge for a resident to bring their own electronics for recycling. Any electronic device placed at the curb requires a large item sticker, as it cannot be placed in the regular collection trucks and requires a special pick-up.

Large cardboard boxes may be placed at the curb for recycling on the regular collection day. They do not have to be flattened. Please remove any styrofoam from the boxes before placing at the curb.

Traditional wrapping paper may be placed in the recycling. No foil type wrappings is allowed in the recycling. Please remove all ribbons and bows from wrapping paper.

If anyone has questions, they may contact Eagle Enterprises at 932-2936.
