RECYCLING CART DELIVERY
The Village has purchased standardized residential recycling carts for use by our residents in order to control the cost of recycling and land fill fees to the Village, limit windblown recycling materials in the streets, and encourage increased recycling. The Village was able to take advantage of an extension of a lower grant pricing by the company servicing Outagamie County.
The carts will be delivered Tuesday, October 10th, through Friday, October 13th. The cost of the 95 gallon cart is approximately $60 each and will be a one-time asssessment to residential property owners.
Residential users can start using the carts right away and put them at the curb for the Wednesday, October 18th, recycling. Outagamie County has provided informational material that is attached to each cart.

The Village's Tree Board worked with tree experts to develop a plan for the replanting of our urban forest and the re-beautification of our home town. The tree replacement program was started in the spring of 2014. We would like to remind everyone about the Memorial Tree Program. Please contact the Administration office at 779-6011 for more information.
