Garbage Cart 

  • Garbage pickup is done weekly using the City supplied garbage cart.
  • Carts should be placed out to the curb for pickup the night before your scheduled day.  Between 5:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
  • The handle of the cart should face the house.
  • The cart should be at least 5 feet from other objects on the terrace such as other carts, mailboxes, trees, parked cars, etc.  This space allows for the hydraulic arm to grab the cart and empty it safely into the truck.
  • Never place a cart in the roadway.  This is a safety concern for motorist.  When there are snow banks, place the cart in your driveway apron opening or clear an area on the terrace to allow crews access to your cart.  Do not place carts on top of snow banks.
  • The lid must be closed.  Any bags that cause the lid to remain open are considered extra garbage and require a prepaid disposal sticker.
  • All carts need to be returned to their place of storage by midnight the day of garbage pickup.
  • Please use plastic garbage bags for items inside the cart.
  • Animal waste is considered garbage and must be bagged.
  • If your cart is too small, too large or needs repair, the property owner should call 920-832-5580.
  • For garbage pickup days specific to your address, you may use our "My Property Info" tool.
