Garbage and Recycling Information
UPDATE: All residents in New Denmark have been switched to a Thursday pick up schedule. Please place all garbage carts and recycling bins road side by 6:00 a.m. on Thursday for pick up. If a holiday falls on a Thursday, pick up will be delayed one day. Any questions or concerns about your pick up times, please contact Advanced Disposal at (920) 983-3341.
The Town contracts with Advanced Disposal Services for garbage an recycling disposal. Carts and bins will be provided to new town residents by Advanced. Please contact the Clerk when you are ready for service. A 95 gallon recycling cart for commingled recycables and a 65 gallon cart for residential waste will be provided to you. A special assessment fee for garbage/recycling will be added to your property tax bill at the end of the year.
A few helpful hints concerning garbage collection:
- Lids on the cart must be closed or your cart may be red tagged due to excess waste.
- Carts should be placed roadside no earlier than 24 hours prior to your scheduled pick-up.
- Paper should either be bagged or bundled to prevent blowing when placed curbside.
Residents can upgrade to larger carts for a minimal fee: A 95 gallon garbage cart can be requested for an additional $36.00 a year. Advanced Disoposal will direct bill individual residents for this upgrade.
Arrangements can also be made directly with Advanced Disposal to have bulky or excess waste picked-up by calling 1-800-279-1930. Pre-payment is required along with specifics as to what is being picked up and how many excess bags will be curbside. Advanced will not pick up yard waste or Christmas trees.
