Solid Waste Dumpster at the Recycling Center


August 2015

The Towns have been in a long term agreement with Advanced Disposal Inc. and their predecessors.  They provide dumpster and landfill services for a substantially reduced rate, and the Towns purchase “Advanced Disposal” bags to use in the solid waste dumpster.  The purchase of the bags is part of the agreement.  The bags are resold to residents at $1.50 each.  They are large enough to hold 2-3 tall kitchen bags of garbage.

Issue – the dumpster is being filled with non-compliant material, such as furniture, mattresses, construction material, other large items, and garbage in other types of bags.  The problem has become so bad that the dumpster is full before Saturday’s operating hours. To help to stop this issue the gates will be locked effective Monday, August 17, 2015, except for Saturday’s hours.

An Advanced Disposal, Inc. representative addressed this issue at the August 11th Meeting of the Town Boards.  He cannot continue to offer this reduced rate, unless we have compliance with this agreement.  In other words, residents MUST purchase and use the Advanced Disposal bags if they use the solid waste dumpster.

The solid waste dumpster is for residential garbage only.  Furniture, mattresses, construction materials or anything that doesn’t fit in the Advanced Disposal Bags will not be accepted.  These materials should be taken to Advanced Disposal, Inc., located at 2510 Engel Road, Wisconsin Rapids, or rent a dumpster for large disposal projects.

The large bags are only $1.50 each.  The bags will be available for purchase during operating hours of the Recycling Center – every Saturday 8:00 a.m.– 1:00 p.m.  If you bring your own garbage bags, you will be required to purchase “Advanced Disposal” bags to use the dumpster.

The cost for non-compliance will affect all taxpayers.

If you have questions, please contact your Town Board.
