(Beaver Dam) It’s that time of the year for Beaver Dam residents to collect their bulk garbage as one of two annual pick-ups is scheduled next week. Public works officials have announced that bulk pick-up will begin on Monday, May 2nd and continue through Friday, May 6th for residents who receive city-provided waste collection services from GFL.
Bulk waste should be placed on the curb no sooner than 24 hours prior to each collection and by 7am on the day of pick-up. Bulk waste is defined as, but not limited to, non-metal furniture, wooden doors and windows and rolled carpet, not exceeding six-feet in length. No metal items like bed springs, doors, windows, appliances, and pipes will be collected. There is a metal bin located at the City Garage for disposal of such items.
Also, no bundled or loose piles of lumber or building materials are accepted; those items must be broken down and placed in the weekly collection cart. The only other bulk pick-up this year will be the first waste collection day of October.
Bulk waste can be dropped off twice a month at Myrtle Road and Beltline Drive near the wastewater treatment plant; that’s on first Wednesday’s from 4pm to 7pm and third Saturday’s from 8am until noon.
