The Town is continuing with the same WEEKLY UP THE DRIVE Garbage/Recycling Service, that we have had since starting the service in the 1990’s. You should be receiving a new 32 Gallon Recycling Container which is the maximum size that the operator can manually lift and empty. The container does not have wheels because the service is up the drive; however, remember that there cannot be any vehicles in the driveway.
RECYCLING: NO SORTING NECESSARY
You can commingle all of your recyclables in the one container. This means that the cardboard; paper; glass bottles and jars; plastic containers #1, 2, 4, 5, 7; aluminum and metal is all put into the 32 gallon recycling container.
Nothing has changed. Continue putting weekly generated garbage out in the container that you have always used.
The only change is that you must contact Advanced Disposal at (262) 367-6040 so that arrangements can be made for the appropriate truck and personnel to come out for pick-up.
Go to the Waste Page for more information.
The days of separating recyclables are over! Beginning January 1, 2015, paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminum cans, glass bottles, and cartons all go in the same container.
Starting in late December, contracted haulers for each municipality will be delivering a new, larger recycling container. These new recycling containers can hold from two to five times more recyclables than the current blue bin.
