The following guidelines should be used when preparing your recyclables for collection:

"To Our Valued Customers: The State of Wisconsin requires licensed waste haulers to notify their customers annually of recycling laws.
This is a reminder that state and local recycling laws require everyone in Wisconsin to recycle newspaper, office paper, magazines, and cardboard. Also glass, plastic, tin and aluminum containers, tires, yard waste, appliances, and motor oil.
You can call our office for more information, or visit: http://dnr.wi.gov/org/aw/wm/recycle/reference.html Thank you for your compliance with these state laws."
It is the responsibility of the owner or occupant of a residence to have their household garbage at the curbside on pick-up day.
Garbage cans placed throughout the Village park system are for park use only.
Remember that this service is for household garbage only. The garbage collector will not pick up leaves, grass clippings, construction materials, appliances, etc.
Some items can be disposed of by contracting a private refuse collector. If a private refuse collector is needed, the Village will not pay for these services.
The nearest landfill is Mallard Ridge located on Highway 11, west of Delavan. Their phone number is (414) 724-3257.
