What should I do if my garbage does not fit in my cart?
All garbage must fit inside the cart with the lid closed. If you have more garbage than what will fit, you should:
>Save it for your next collection day.
>Contact the office to make arrangements for extra pick-up or for an extra car at 920-982-4116.
>If you would like a dumpster to accommodate larger amounts of trash, please call the office.
How do I set my cart out on collection day?
Place your cart curbside before 6am on your day of collection, with the carts handle facing your house and the lid opening toward the street. Make sure to place carts at least four feet other objects, such as a parked car or mailbox. NOTE: If you cart is out late, you must wait until your next scheduled pick-up.
What if there is a snowbank?
In the case of snow, if your cart will not fit in your driveway opening, then you will need to clear an opening in the snowbank where the cart can be properly placed. Carts cannot be placed on top of the snow bank or in the road. Improperly placed carts will not be collected.
What if my cart is damaged or needs repair?
If your cart is damaged or in need of repair as a result of normal wear and tear (e.g. broken lid, wheel, cracked cart, etc.), contact Graichen Disposal & Recycling at 920-982-4116.
Can I take my cart with me if I move?
NO. Carts are property of Graichen Disposal and Recycling, LLC. Each cart is numbered and registered to the address where it was delivered. If you move, you need to contact Graichen Disposal & Recycling at 920-982-4116.
What are my other options for disposal of items not covered by the weekly collection program?
