Refuse/Recycling Program for Single Family, Duplex and Mobile Home Residences
Garbage and recycling services for single family homes, duplexes and mobile homes are provided by Waste Management. Place your garbage cart by the curb (on terrace or driveway, not on the street) by 7am on Wednesdays. Garbage collection is every week, recycling collection is every other week. A schedule of collection weeks is provided below.
Any bulky item that does not fit into the carts can be disposed of by contacting Waste Management at 1-888-960-0008. Provide Waste Management with your name, address and the item(s) to be picked up. They will bill you over the phone. Bulky item pick up is scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month. Waste Management will only pick up the bulky items if you have called them to schedule the pick up. Click here for a list of items they will take.
Apartments and businesses need to contract their own garbage and recycling services and bulky item pick up.
All residents may utilize the bulk waste drop off day held in May.

Yard Waste Clean-Up & Brush Chipping
Grass clippings and miscellaneous yard waste such as flowers, leaves and plant trimmings can be brought to the Village dump site located at 100 Pleasant Hill Avenue. The dump site is open for Village residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Grass clippings and miscellaneous yard waste should not be placed on the terrace and will not be picked up.
Brush can be placed on the terrace. Brush (sticks and branches) which is large enough to chip (generally at least ½” in diameter, yet no more than 4” in diameter and at least three feet long) may be piled loose on the terrace and should be placed with cut ends all pointing in the same direction as the traffic travels in the lane closest to your property. Branches should not be more than 10’ long. All yokes and wyes more than 1 ½” in size must be cut through. Small brush of ½” diameter or less should be put in a solid container. Brush placed in bags or cardboard boxes will not be picked up. If a tree trimming service is hired for maintenance at your residence, that business is required to dispose of the tree brush. Public Works will limit brush chipping to one hour per residence per week so as to better serve the community.
Please do not place brush on the curb more than 24 hours prior to collection. Collection will be on Mondays as weather permits. Help keep the Village of Lomira attractive!
