One Man's Garbage.... dumped in an alley!

Yes, sometimes we hold a "Large Item Pick Up" day, but it is scheduled for twice a year and items are to be placed on the front street. Residents are notified, and the scheduled pick up is offered as a public service.

If you see anyone dropping off large items in an alley in Holden, please take down a license number and contact the Village Office. This is an illegal act, and the garbage trucks are not going to pick up anything left outside of the bins.
