Each residential address is allotted one trash and one recycling bin. For new home construction you will need to call Pellitteri at (608) 257-4285 to schedule delivery of your new bins.
Receptacles and containers for refuse and rubbish shall be placed in collection locations prior to 7 a.m. of the scheduled collection day, but not more than 12 hours prior to such time. All receptacles and containers shall be removed from the curbside collection point within 12 hours after the regular collection time. If the scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, collection will be on the following scheduled working day.
Purchasing Trash Tags
In the event that you have extra items for regular trash collection, trash tags may be purchased at the Village Hall, 500 W, Main Street. They are sold in sheets of 5 for $15. Extra trash must be placed in 32 gallon plastic bags weighing no more than 50lbs.
Extra recycling will be picked up for free (and without a tag) as long as it is placed in a clear, plastic bag (32-gallons or less and no more than 50lbs) and set next to your recycling cart on your recycling week. Extra cardboard should be flattened and placed in clear plastic bags as well. Do not tie or bundle cardboard. If you consistently have additional recycling, you may consider a larger or additional recycling cart. Residents that already have a 95-gallon recycling cart are eligible for one additional recycling cart without an additional annual or monthly fee. There is a one-time $25.00 delivery charge if you would like the cart delivered curbside. Otherwise, you can pick up the additional cart from Pellitteri Waste Systems’ location in Madison. Please contact them at 608-257-4285 one-day in advance so that they can make sure a cart is ready for you as they are kept at a different location.
Cart Exchange ProgramAll residences are given 95 gallon containers to start. Residents may request a change in cart size at no charge. Residents will need contact the Village of Waunakee at (608) 850-8500 and be prepared to provide a name, address and phone number. You will also need to provide information regarding your existing cart size and replacement cart size. The cart sizes (35, 64 or 95 gallons) are indicated on the bins themselves beginning with a T for trash or a R for recycle. Cart exchanges are only done once per month. Once you have placed your order you will need to bring your old cart to the Public Works building at 504 Moravian Valley Road any time after the first Monday of the following month to make the exchange.
