Container Sizes

New residents should contact the Public Works Department to obtain their containers. The following sizes are available to residents:

  • 64-Gallon: A resident is provided a trash and recycling container of this size unless a different size is requested.
  • 64-Gallon and 32-Gallon: For the cost of $96 per year, an additional 32-gallon may be acquired for weekly collection.
  • One 35-Gallon: Households that are able to make due with a single 32-gallon container are encourage to do so, as the Village receives a credit for the reduced service.
  • Two 35-Gallon: Residents who are physically unable to handle the larger 64-gallon containers may instead use two smaller 35-gallon containers.

Please note: If a resident would like a larger (95-gallon) trash or recycling container, please contact Pellitteri at 608-257-4285. There will be an additional charge and Pellitteri will bill a resident directly for any additional charge(s).

  • Do keep a 24-inch separation between containers and other obstructions.
  • Do have containers ready by 6 am.
  • Do not overfill containers.
  • Do not place containers near or under overhanging obstructions.
  • Do not place containers in the street.
