GREENDALE (WITI) — Greendale residents now have the option of using smaller garbage containers, as they have in the past, or buying larger garbage carts designed to be emptied by a mechanical lifting device fitted to the Village’s garbage trucks.

The carts are available in 95 gallon and 65 gallon sizes and are for refuse only. The carts have an attached lid and wheels making it easier to bring garbage to the curb. The 95 gallon cart is $50 and the 65 gallon cart is $45.

The use of garbage carts is voluntary. Carts may be purchased Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Department of Public Works – 6351 Industrial Loop. Carts may be picked up at the Department of Public Works.

If you are unable to pick up the cart the Department will deliver them. The carts will be delivered once a week on Fridays, except in cases of holidays or inclement weather. Contact the Department of Public Works with any additional questions 414-423-2133.
