Issues with your refuse or recycling pick-up? 608-257-4285
Read this before using the refuse and recycling search tool:
Important tip for using the What Goes Where search tool
Your specific search word may not show up in the suggested terms - this is normal! Specific items may be part of larger categories - for example, searching "TV" will give you the “E-Waste” category as an option, or searching "dehumidifier" will give you “Appliances” (see example image below).
Some categories may not be immediately obvious - also think about what your item is made of; ie: a lamp is typically mostly metal, so choose the "Metal" category. Many times it is the material, not the item itself, that determines how something can be disposed of (a metal door is handled differently than a wood door).
Please read the search terms that pop up first to see if your item fits in one of those categories before submitting it as a suggested item!
Pellitteri Residential Curbside Collection
Basic Information, including current collection map and schedules, allowable items, and general instructions.
The Public Works Department oversees the collection of refuse and recycling for one, two, three and four unit residential properties in the City. Refuse and recycling collection is under contract with Pellitteri Waste Systems. No retail, commercial or industrial properties are included in the City’s contract with Pellitteri.
Pellitteri provides weekly refuse collection and biweekly automated recycling collection. Pellitteri sponsors a free E-Waste disposal day at the Public Works Drop-Off Site to City of Verona residents. The exact date of the free E-Waste drop-off will be printed on the third quarter utility bills annually and posted on the City of Verona Facebook page. It usually takes place on a Saturday in October. In addition, the City provides E-Waste disposal at the drop-off site to City residents for a fee. The special charge for refuse and recycling will be $182 per stop for the year 2022.
The City estimates collecting 1,200 tons of cardboard, newsprint, magazines and mixed paper, aluminum and steel containers, plastics, and mixed glass in 2020 at a projected cost of $156,600. Each year, city staff collects approximately 2,000 tons of yard waste and brush for an estimated cost of $290,000. In 2020, the City recycled an estimated 5 tons of waste tires, 3,200 gallons of waste oil, and 32 tons of electronic devices, 10 tons of major appliances and 500 pounds of lead acid batteries. The department also estimates the collection of 3,000 tons of refuse from one to four unit residential properties at a cost of $439,000. It is anticipated that the City will receive $21,500 in recycling grant funds in 2021.
