Changes to Solid Waste Collection

Changes to Solid Waste Collection
Posted on 02/07/2024
Effective March 1, 2024, the Village is shifting from unlimited and automated collection to a new pay-per-cart system. Starting March 4, 2024, only Village-issued carts will be collected, and any garbage or recycling placed outside the
carts will not be picked up.

New Fee Structure
Residents requesting additional garbage carts or wish to swap their current cart for a different size can enjoy waived upfront costs and swap fees between February 12 and February 23, 2024. The 95-gallon cart is considered the primary cart for those with multiple cart sizes.

Garbage Cart Size Monthly Cost 
 Primary 95-gallon cart  $23.50
 Primary 65-gallon cart $21.50
 Additional 95-gallon cart  $12.00/per cart*
 Additional 65-gallon cart $11.00/per cart* 
*Garbage only, there is no monthly fee for additional recycling carts.

Cart Management
If additional carts are no longer needed, please contact the Public Works Department at 262.925.6700 to schedule a pickup.

Items larger than a cart will require Bulk or White Goods Pickup.

Recycling Options
Residents will continue to pay the $70.00 delivery fee for additional recycling carts but there is no monthly fee for recycling carts.

Residents can bring additional garbage to the Residential Recycling Center, located at 8000 128th Street, at a charge of $7.00 per cubic yard.

Keep it lose in the cart! Do not bag recyclables. Recycling facilities consider recyclables that are held in plastic bags as contaminated and the bagged recycling will be routed to the landfill.

Benefits and Safety Considerations
Keeping garbage within designated carts contributes to a cleaner neighborhood, reduces littering, enhances sanitation, and minimizes the risk of workplace injuries for our  employees.
