Garbage & Recycling Information

GARBAGE INFO


Our garbage day is Wednesday.  Please have your carts curbside by 7am.  If a holiday falls on Wednesday, pickup will be the next day.  For updates regarding garbage pickup, register on Advanced Disposal's website.


Bags are not required but are recommended to help keep the road way clean.  (The driver will not pickup any materials that blow out while dumping the cart.)

 

Please call Advanced Disposal at 1-888-688-4005 if you have any questions, they miss your pickup or your cart is damaged.

 

Why does Advanced pick up one side of the street only to turn around the pick the other side up? Advanced Disposal operates right hand routing on all residential routes because it is much safer. Operating vehicles against traffic flow or weaving from one side of the street to another increases the likelihood of an accident or injury. While this may add time to our routes, there is never time for an accident or injury due to crisscrossing roads with our trucks or our employees. - See more at: http://www.advanceddisposal.com/for-government/collection-services/waste-removal.aspx#sthash.aPUlnBJt.dpuf

  Ecycle Information - Wisconsin’s E-Waste Law  

Electronic waste is the fastest growing component of waste in the United States. There are millions of pounds of electronic waste in Wisconsin alone.

But trashing electronics is not without consequences. Electronics can contain harmful chemicals like mercury, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals, as well as chemical flame-retardants. When disposed of improperly, these pollutants can pose a risk to human and environmental health.

Electronics also contain valuable reusable materials, including steel, gold, silver, copper and glass. Properly recycling these materials reduces the need for mining new materials.

This law requires manufacturers of certain consumer electronics to assume responsibility for the collection and recycling of used electronics.

 Under a new electronics recycling law, passed in October 2009, Wisconsinites now have the opportunity to recycle their electronics instead of trashing them. The E-Cycle Wisconsin program, created under the law by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), provides electronics recycling options in many parts of the state and bans the land filling of certain electronic devices as of Sept. 1, 2010.

The following electronics are recycled through E-Cycle Wisconsin:

        Computers (desktop, laptop, net books and tablet computers)

        Desktop printers (including those that scan, fax and/or copy)

        Computer monitors

        Televisions

        DVD players, VCRs and DVRs

        Fax machines

        Computer mice and keyboards

        Other computer accessories such as hard drives, speakers, flash drives and modems
