Each single family residence has been issued one cart for garbage and one cart for recycling. The collection date will remain Tuesday. Garbage and recycling should be placed at the curb no later than 6:00 AM the day of collection, but no earlier than 6:00 PM the night before.
Please place carts facing the street, handle towards your home (There are arrows and instructions on the lid).
When it is recycling week, place both of the carts facing the street 3 feet apart from each other to facilitate removal.
Garbage will be placed in the "BROWN" container. Garbage is picked up every Tuesday starting at 6:00 a.m. Only garbage in the carts will be picked up. If your garbage has not been picked up please call Columbia County Solid Waste at (608) 742-6651.
If you have large items and would like them picked up, you can call Columbia County Solid Waste at (608) 742-6651 and make arrangements.
Recyclables will be picked up every other Tuesday. Please place the recyclables in your "BLUE" Container at your curbside away from your regular garbage. Recycling that doesn’t fit in your cart may be placed in clear bags and adhere to the recycling rules.
RECYCLING RULES: Columbia County Solid Waste request that all recyclables be placed in your "BLUE" container or a clear plastic bag. This means that all of your recyclable materials (glass, paper, plastic, tin, and cardboard) can be mixed together in one bag, as long as one person can easily lift the bag. Place garbage and recycling bags/containers at curb by 6:00 AM. Garbage person must be able to tell which is garbage and which is recycling or they will not take the bags. Clear garbage bags are available at Piggly Wiggly Stores and Walmart.
