Refuse & Recycling
Waste Management Cart Collection
Updated 1/10/2022 2pm CT
Waste Management has completed the empty cart removal from the City and did a second pass on Saturday (1/8/22) to collect any empty carts missed. A total of 8,033 Waste Management carts have been removed curbside.
City staff is aware that there are still Waste Management carts curbside with waste in them. Pellitteri will empty the Waste Management carts curbside and log the street location. Public Works staff will also keep a log of known Waste Management carts to be removed from calls-ins and emails. The combined logs will be provided to Waste Management to allow them to remove the carts curbside on Friday (1/14/22).
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.
Some items that are not included with your weekly pick-up (such as yard waste, old appliances and electronics) may be brought to the Public Works drop-off site. There will be a fee for tires (must be off-rim) and electronic waste drop-off, payable by cash or check only.
Pick-up for large items/appliances NOT included in weekly bulk pick-up service:
If you are unable to transport your large appliances or have other items that are not included in the bulk pick-up service, you may request a special scheduled pick-up through Pellitteri for a fee. For more information about this service, such as fees and acceptable items, or to schedule a special item pick-up, call 608-257-4285. You may also choose to use a different collection service or another private junk hauling company. The City of Verona does not provide or schedule any special pick-up service.
The Wisconsin Recycling Company comes to Verona about once a month and pays for aluminum items. Please click the link above to be directed to their Facebook page for more information.
