Fall yard waste collection begins October 15 and ends November 30 (or earlier if snow gets in the way). You can dispose of your own yard waste any time of year at the Dane County landfill. For information about the landfill, call 838-9555.
The requirements for bagging of yard waste are easy. First, the bags can not weigh more than 40 pounds, and should be tied shut. Bags cannot have anything other than yard waste inside them, including trash and animal waste. Following these two simple rules will make yard waste pickup more efficient for the Public Works Department.
The Town asks you to consider using biodegradable paper bags instead of plastic. While the paper bags are a bit pricier, they are more eco-friendly and increase the efficiency of yard waste pickup.
