Board of Public Works Updates on Trash and Recycling Services

Update on 4/13/18

Carts are expected to arrive in Marshfield on Monday, April 16 and delivery is expected to start that afternoon.  At this point, Advanced Disposal is not anticipating delays due to the weekend weather.  Cart delivery will be about a 10 day process, so all carts will be delivered before the April 30 start date for collection using the new carts.  Both the refuse and recycling carts will be delivered at the same time.  Information on the new routes and collection schedule will included inside the recycling cart.  Questions can be directed to Advanced Disposal at 715-502-3565.
