A Message from your Town Board…

We operate a “Single Stream” recycling process. This means that all of your recyclables (paper, plastic, glass, aluminum, magazines and cardboard) should all be placed into one container. The Single Stream process makes disposal easier for you and the town. Did you know the Town pays to dump garbage, but the recyclables are taken away for free? The more garbage you can recycle, the less you have to pay in bag fees and the less the taxpayers have to pay in garbage hauling fees. It does pay to RECYCLE and it is good for our environment as well.


  • How To Recycle Common Items

     Place all recyclable items together in your Single Stream container. 
    ITEMS MUST BE LOOSE!
    DO NOT PLACE CONTENTS IN PLASTIC BAGS!

    ATTENTION: Wisconsin Adm.
