Garbage and Recycling

Harter's Fox Valley Disposal is the Village's garbage and recycling hauler. The Village signed a 7-year agreement beginning September 1, 2014. The garbage and recycling carts are owned by Harter's which means they are rented by the residents of the Village and should be left at a residence should you move. The carts will also be serviced anytime by Harter's at no additional cost to the residents; please call Harter's at (715) 253-2619 or (888) 804-8556 for any repairs. The monthly charges which are on the utility bill are for garbage and recycling collection, cart rental, fuel charges, and general administration.

Garbage is a weekly collection based on the garbage pickup map. Recycling is bi-weekly with the same collection map, please see calendar below for collection weeks. Garbage and recycling collection will be delayed one day for observance for the following Holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

If your street is missed for collection, residents are encouraged to contact Harter's directly and leave garbage/recycling bins at the curb until pick-up is scheduled.
