Garbage Pickup

Garbage should be placed at curbside no later than 7:00 am on Thursdays for households in the Village. If there is a major holiday during the week (New Year’s, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas), garbage and recycling will be picked up on Friday of that week. Garbage that is mixed with recyclables will not be picked up until the garbage and recyclables have been separated. NO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS WILL BE PICKED UP.

  • How do I dispose of large items like appliances, tires, construction & demolition debris, TVs and computers? Tires, Appliances and Construction debris are not collected as part of the Village waste or recycling collection agreement. To make special arrangements please contact Peterson Sanitation in Boscobel at 608-524-6603 to arrange pickup.
  • How do I recycle? – The Village has a curbside recycling program in conjunction with the regular garbage pick-up.  Recycling items may be comingled in your recycling container. In your new place of residence, a yellow lid recycling container should have been left by the previous tenants. These containers are the property of Town & Country Sanitation, and should remain with the property. If your new residence is a new home, the initial recycling bin will be provided free of charge.
  • When is brush pick up?  Brush only will be picked up on the first and third Monday of the month for Village residents only weather permitting. The removal of entire trees is the responsibility of the property owner. Brush placed out for brush pick up must be placed with large end to the curb and going the same direction. Cutting of whole trees will not be accepted as brush for pick up. Entire bushes that have been pulled up will be accepted if the roots have been removed. Anything placed out for brush pick up must have the roots removed.
  • How do I dispose of yard waste? Grass clippings or brush may be brought to the brush dump at Lake Marion along with leaves.
