*** Per Harter’s Fox Valley Disposal- If a holiday falls in the week of our normal pickup before our normal pickup day (Wednesday), pickup will be pushed back one day (to Thursday).***
(If you have questions on this, please call either Harter’s Fox Valley Disposal or the Clerk.)
 
Garbage must be put in bags in the garbage cart. Recyclables must be placed loosely in the recycling cart  (do NOT put recyclables in a bag in the cart).
 
Large items in our Town are picked up every other Tuesday (opposite weeks as garbage pickup). You must call Harter’s Fox Valley Disposal for pricing and to schedule pickup by 2pm on Monday before pickup day.
