Refuse & Recycling

AND WILL NOT BE UPDATED
You are familiar with those huge recycle bins that take up a lot of space in your garage? Well make room for another large bin. The new refuse bins will be a permanent addition to your garage or wherever you store them. While these things work pretty well during the Summer time, during the Winter, they are just a big pain in the you know what. So much easier to just put out a couple of bags of trash rather than dragging these bins around and trying to find some place to put them when there is three feet of snow plowed up on the curbs. Then you don't have to go out and drag the garbage bin back in again. But alas, it is not to be anymore. Plus, you have to space these bins out so that there is at least two feet of space inbetween any other bin or object.
On June 9th, 2008 the new bins will need to be used for any trash collection. Anything not in the bin will be charged extra for pickup.
Stickers will need to be purchasaed for trash bags unable to fit within the 96 gallon bins. Stickers will be sold for $3 for packs of 10 at three or four sites throughout the city, including the Sun Prairie Municipal Building. Three stickers will be distributed for free at the time the new refuse carts are delivered to city residents
Another change is for pick-up of bulk items. If you want to have large bulk items hauled away prices will be ranging from five dollars for mattresses and/or box springs to fifty dollars for riding lawn mowers.
Call the city of Sun Prairie and talk to Jaci. She will tell you the amount to send her and when you can put your item out for pickup.
