New Refuse and Recycling Collection Service

To set up an account for garbage collection, water, sewer and/or electrical service please contact City Hall at 608-882-2266, option 1.   
The staff at City Hall will set up your billing for garbage collection, but the City does not operate the garbage and recycling collection service.  


Curbside Collection Services


Yard Waste 

Collection of branches, brush and yard waste debris is scheduled from April to October, on the first (1st) full work week of the month.  All grass clipping and small yard waste must be placed in a paper bag or a container that can be emptied and placed back onto the parking area.  No plastic bags. 
Yard waste should not be raked or blown into the street.  Please be kind and blow your lawn clippings into your yard for natural decomposing.  When the lawn clippings clump together they create major clogs in the stormwater drainage system which can contribute to flash flooding and standing water in the streets.



Curbside leaf collection begins after curbside yard waste collection ends and will continue until snow accumulates or the end of November. Municipal Services requests that leaves are left loose on the curb. You may also take them to the Yard Waste Drop Site, located at 465 Water St (next to the Fire Station).


Holiday Tree 

Curbside tree collection will begin the first workday following Christmas Day and continue until snow accumulates or the end of January. It will then resume in April when the yard waste curbside collection begins.
