Pay-By-The-Bag Garbage Program

Pay-By-The-Bag garbage programs enable you to pay only for the garbage you produce 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!  All you have to do is purchase tags at City Hall, Piggly Wiggly, Pick n’ Save  or Waupaca Rec Center.  Tags are $3.00 each, sold in sheets of five, for $15.00.

Garbage bags with tags can be dropped off at the Waupaca Regional Recycling Center.
