Garbage and Recycling Changes

For 2020 both Garbage & Recycling will be picked up every Friday beginning January 10th.

For a smooth transition Advanced Disposal has agreed to do a double pickup the last week of 2019. There will be a Garbage pickup on Monday, December 30th and a Garbage & Recycling pickup on Saturday, January 4th.

Advanced Disposal has informed the Village that every house will get one new cart for garbage and one new cart for recycling, so that the carts are uniform throughout the Village. If desired, you may call Advanced Disposal to request that your old containers be removed. Their phone number is (715) 997-3133.

If residents are currently renting carts from Advanced Disposal, they will need to call and cancel their rental agreement and Advanced Disposal will remove those carts.

If residents have purchased the carts from Advanced Disposal, but no longer want them, you will need to call them at the number above to request that they be picked up. Advanced Disposal will not provide reimbursements for carts that were purchased.

Drop off of the carts will begin during the week of December 13 thru December 20. For residents that may not be home when carts are dropped off, you are encouraged to ask a neighbor to take the carts in for you.

All carts will have a new pickup schedule brochure hanging under the cart lid. The brochures will be bagged to protect them from the elements. The Village will also have extra copies of the brochure at the Whiting Municipal Building – or by clicking the 2020 calendar link below.

As a reminder Village residents can only put out one garbage cart and one recycling cart each week (per the Village’s contract with Advanced Disposal). Advanced Disposal will not empty more than one garbage or one recycling cart per residence per week.

As soon as you get your new carts you can start using them, you don’t have to wait for the New Year to begin to use carts.
