Waste Disposal & Recycling
Basic garbage service includes bi-weekly pick-up and landfill services for residents of Indian Head.
Residents of Indian Head also demonstrate their care for our environment with their ongoing participation in the Emterra Recycling initiative. Many residents also partake in personal green practices such as composting that benefit us all through reductions in the amount and cost of waste management.
