Garbage Disposal

The City of Waupaca does not operate a citywide garbage collection program.  Residents are encouraged to participate in the pay-by-the-bag program detailed below or to contact a private garbage company to arrange for home pickup service. What is Pay-By-The-Bag? The program enables you to pay only for what garbage you have instead of paying a flat rate no matter how much you have.  The beauty of this system is that the more you recycle, the less garbage you have, and the less you have to pay for that garbage. Pay-By-The-Bag saves you money!  You purchase 5 tags for $15.00.  Use 35 gallon maximum clear garbage bag with a 30 pound maximum. Stop by these participating locations to purchase your tags and find out more about the  program:  Waupaca Recreation Center, Piggly Wiggly, Pick n’ Save, JR’s True Value, Town of Farmington Hall and Waupaca City Hall.
