Residential pick up of recyclables is made twice a month on the second and fourth Monday of the month.

Recyclables can be mixed in the same bag (they do not need to be separated) and may

include glass, plastic, tin and aluminum as follows:

  • Plastic- no. 1 thru 7, rinsed, caps off
  • Glass- rinsed, caps off
  • Aluminum/tin-rinsed

Other recyclables that are picked up include:

  • Newspapers-bundled and securely tied
  • Cardboard- flattened and securely tied in bundles
  • Magazines

This service is available to all town residents and includes recyclables only. This service has been contracted to Town & Country Sanitation; any questions call 1-800-626-1915, or (608) 375-5856. It does not include regular garbage pickup (this must be contracted privately) nor does it include other non-recyclables (lead batteries, tires, yard waste, major appliances, motor oil, broken glass, mirrors, ceramics, clay pots, light bulbs, etc).

Certain weeks may have delayed recycle or garbage pick-ups.  The following note is from Town and Country:
