recycling cart program for residents who are currently receiving curbside service from the City. (Find the FAQ below!)

Garbage & Recycling Contract Updates – Timeline & Information


The new program provides residents with trash and recycling carts made of sturdy commercial grade plastic with wheels for easy movement and hinged lids to contain items and minimize animal pilferage and blowing trash. The new carts provide a clean and convenient way for residents to dispose of trash and recyclables and increase their recycling capacity.

As part of your curbside service, you will receive a 96-gallon trash cart and a 96-gallon recycling cart by default. If you would like to substitute either of your 96-gallon carts for a smaller size, please complete the card that was mailed to your home address or visit the following website to submit your change:

Beginning Tuesday, April 10, 2018, carts will start being delivered to residents. It will take a couple weeks to complete delivery to all residents. The first collection date using the new carts will be Monday, April 30. Trash will be serviced weekly and recycling will be serviced every other week. Service days will be announced at a later date and shared with the residents.

Please make sure to choose the size that will fit your weekly trash needs and every other week recycling needs, to avoid having material outside of your cart.

Cart size options:
35-gallon cart – holds up to 2 standard kitchen-size bags
64-gallon cart – holds up to 4 standard kitchen-size bags
96-gallon cart – holds up to 6 standard kitchen-size bags

You can view samples of cart sizes at City Hall, City Garage, Everett Roehl Marshfield Public
Library and Advanced Disposal through the month of January.

Again, if you would like to receive a 96-gallon cart for both trash and recycling, you do not have to do anything. If you would like to substitute either of your 96-gallon carts for a smaller size please complete the card that was mailed to your home address or visit the following website to submit your response:

All responses must be postmarked by Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

If you have any questions, you may contact Advanced Disposal at (715) 502-3565.
