If you have placed recyclables inside of your garbage container, we will not pick up your garbage. Also, many times it is because the garbage and/or recycling polycarts were placed too close to other objects. The garbage and recycling polycarts must be placed a minimum of 4 feet away from each and any other object. Garbage and recycling must also be placed curbside by 6 a.m. on your day of pickup or the night before. Garbage and recycling must fit inside of the polycarts with the lid closed. Also, you need to set your polycarts where no vehicles can park it in. If polycarts cannot be reached for any reason, garbage and recycling will not be picked up.
Please check the Garbage and Recycling Calendar for the dates in April and December that the Village picks up extra bags of garbage that don't fit inside of your polycart. If residents recycle properly, they should have no problem fitting all of their garbage inside of the polycart. Residents may request another garbage container; however, they will then be billed for two containers on their monthly Kaukauna Utility bill (Sanitation/Recycling fee). Otherwise, residents have the option of taking their garbage to the Outagamie County Landfill. The Landfill charges $12.00 per visit for 640 pounds or less.
Large metal items are picked up every three months (in January, April, July and October) on your last garbage pickup day of that month. Check the Garbage and Recycling Calendar for those dates. The purchase of a non-refundable $20.00* sticker is required for any appliance that normally contains freon such as a dehumidifier, refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner, etc. These stickers may be purchased at the Finance Dept. in the Village Hall (108 W. Main Street). *Due to the increasing costs of disposing of "freon" appliances (manpower to collect these appliances, fuel, and wear & tear of vehicles used to pick items up curbside) the Village Board increased the cost of each non-refundable freon sticker to $20.00 on November 6, 2013.
Large non-metal items will be picked up on the last regular garbage pickup day of each month. Check the Garbage and Recycling Calendar for those dates.
