GARBAGE COLLECTION POLICIES

The Town provides recycling services as a part of your garbage fee through WI; a separate cart is provided for this service. Collection of recyclables is every other Thursday. Click here for the recycling schedule.
†Please have your carts at the curb on the Wednesday evening before collection.†
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YARD WASTE IN CARDBOARD BOXES
Town crews collect grass clippings, brush and leaves, and any other yard waste, either every Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on volume; all yard waste must be in bags for collection.
Brush and limbs must be separated from leaves and grass clippings. Brush and limbs must be no longer than four feet in length and six inches in diameter.
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE DIRT OR MULCH IN TRASH CANS
†Crews will make only one trip through town; therefore, please have yard waste at the curb by Monday evening†
THERE MUST BE NO GARBAGE OR TRASH MIXED WITH ANY YARD WASTE!!
White goods (appliances) and brown goods (discarded home furnishings) are collected twice annually, in the Spring and the Fall; actual dates will be announced on your utility bills.
We DO NOT collect used tires!
Home demolition or tree removal performed by commercial contractors will not be collected by the town. It is the contractor’s responsibility to remove construction debris and trees!
†The town does not provide garbage collection services outside the town limits†
