Collection Site Notice

It would be appreciated when you bring in a larger item (TV stand, dresser etc...) if you would knock it down as flat as possible to take up less space in the dumpsters.  This would also be helpful when bringing in cardboard boxes.  The more we get in the dumpsters, the less it costs us in transport charges.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
As of December 1, 2015 ID Tags will now be needed when you visit the Collection Site.  If you have not received yours please contact the Town Hall Office at 920-876-3413. Lost, stolen or replacement tags are available for a $20 fee.
