Brush and Bulk Garbage Pickup Begins Tomorrow

10/31/11 – We’re coming up on the last chance of the year for Beaver Dam residents to take advantage of curbside brush and bulk garbage pick-up. The final pick-up for loose tree limbs and shrubbery cuttings begins tomorrow (Tuesday, 11/1) and continues through Monday (November 7). Loose tree limbs and shrubbery cuttings should be up to 7 inches in thickness and 8 feet in length. The service will resume again in April. Bulk waste is defined as, but no limited to, furniture, wooden doors and windows and rolled carpet, not exceeding 4’ to 6’ in length. The collection regulations have changed as a result of the state’s new E-Cycle law. Items that will no longer be collected include desktop and laptop computers, printers, fax machines, cell phones, DVD players and computer monitors. In addition, no metal items like bed springs, doors, windows and pipes will be collected. No bundled or loose piles of building materials will be collected. Building materials like lumber must be broken down and placed in the weekly collection cart. The next bulk garbage pick-up will be the first waste collection day of May. Items should be placed at the street edge by 7am on garbage day and cannot be placed out sooner than 24 hours prior to your scheduled pick-up.
