Please have your can on the curb before 7 AM on its assigned day. The cans must be easy for us to roll out to the street (i.e If they are stuck in a snowbank we will not pick them up).

  • Garbage pick-up (black can) will always be on Mondays unless there is a holiday.
  • Recycle pick-up (blue can) will be on the 1st Tuesday and the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

NOTE: If a holiday lands on a Sunday or Monday, we will pick up your garbage on that Tuesday and recycle on that 1st and/or 3rd Wednesday.

Check out our calendar on the homepage to see the schedule.

Recyclable items include: all paper items; envelopes, newsprint, magazines, books, loose paper. Tin cans must be rinsed clean. Glass bottles empty. Plastic bottles must be empty and clean.

Beds, chairs, sofas, tables will all be accepted during our spring cleanup week. You may take them to Modern Disposal in Tomah any time of the year and pay their rates.

These items will only be picked up during our spring clean-up week in May. You will be charged $10 for each item. You must pay the village before they will be picked up, they include Televisions, computers, monitors, refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners.

We will pick up tires for $3 each.

The water sometimes is brown due to a build up of iron on the pipes that make up the distribution system that delivers water to your home.

This iron builds up on the pipe and sometimes dissolves into the water.  We flush the mains twice a year to scour the pipes to help eliminate this problem.

It is safe, run your cold water tap for at least 5+ minutes.  This should clear your line.

Call the Public Works Director if you are considering building a new home and need water and sewer service.
