Waste Management

Garbage & Recycling Notice

There is an ongoing issue with contaminated recycling (too much garbage in it) being dropped off at the transfer site. The transfer site have mentioned it a couple of times in the past but now they have said it’s getting worse and needs to stop or they will not allow us to drop it there anymore. If this happens it will not be good for anyone. Drivers can do what they can on our end with stickers on the offending households but we need your help with too.

Welcome to your trash and recycle cart!

In an effort to keep our communities clean and create more efficient collection routes, your municipality has moved to automated trash and recycling collection using new carts. The lidded cart keeps materials dry and from blowing out on windy days. The carts are also designed to easily roll to the street or road. Further, the automated collection system increases the level of safety for route drivers.

NO, DO NOT place recyclables in plastic bags or put bags-of-bags in your cart. Plastic bags can be dropped off at the local grocery store, Stodola’s IGA.

Save them for your next collection day.
Ask a neighbor if they have extra room in their cart for your trash or recycle.
Call Harter’s to rent an additional trash or recycle cart for a yearly fee.

No. Each cart should stay with the property. These carts are the property of Harter’s, for cart repair or rental of additional cart; please call (715) 253-2619or (888)804-8556.

Place your cart curbside before 5am the day of collection, with the cart’s handle facing your house and the lid opening toward the street. All solid waste MUST be bagged. Make sure there is at least four feet between the recycling and trash carts, and any other objects, such as a parked car or mailbox. Note, if your carts were set out late, you must wait until your next scheduled pick-up.

In the case of snow, if your cart will not fit in your driveway opening, then you will need to clear an opening in the snowbank where the cart can be properly placed. Carts cannot be placed on top of the snowbank or in the road. Improperly placed carts will not be collected.
