KAUKAUNA — City crews will pick up anything (except hazardous waste, propane tanks, electronics, tires, motor oil, and oil filters) that you put out on your normal garbage collection day this week, May 9-12, 2016, according to the spring city of Kaukauna newsletter.

Here are the details:

Leaves, garden debris, small sticks, and twigs MUST be in open containers with handles and not larger than thirty (30) gallons and not weighing more than fifty (50) pounds.

Additionally, residents can use Yard Master™ or equal 2-ply Kraft paper compost bags that are designed for yard waste disposal. These bags can be purchased at local hardware and grocery stores. Plastic bags, grocery bags, and cardboard boxes containing yard waste will not be collected.

White Goods must have a sticker before being placed out for collection.

Stickers can be purchased at the City Clerk’s office at 201 W. Second Street,

Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 AM-4:30 PM. Refrigerant stickers (freezer, refrigerator, air conditioner, or dehumidifier) are $15.

Non-refrigerant stickers (stove, microwave, oven, washer, dryer, dishwasher, furnace, or water heater) are $10. If an appliance is left on a curb or in an alley more than 24 hours, a charge of $20 plus the cost of a sticker will be billed to the property owner.

NO TIRES WILL BE COLLECTED DURING OUR SPRING CLEAN-UP WEEKS.

Limbs and branches 2’-4’ in length should be wrapped in bundles. Limbs and branches 4’-6’ long should be neatly placed on the terrace with the butt ends facing the roadway.

(Limb and branch collection by the City occurs during the second full week of every month.)

Grass clippings will be accepted, however, the City of Kaukauna and the Wisconsin Department of Natural

Resources encourage residents to leave their grass clippings on the lawn. Lawn clippings are a good source of fertilizer and can also make excellent compost.

Take this opportunity to clean up around your home and garage and dispose of any unwanted items. PLEASE MAKE SURE THESE ITEMS ARE OUT BY 7 AM ON YOUR NORMAL GARBAGE PICK-UP DAY.

If you have questions, please call the Street Department Office—766- 6337.

***
Hazardous wastes such as solvents, gasoline, fuel oil, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, antifreeze, lead based paints/oil based paints, acids and alkalis, etc., CANNOT BE PUT OUT FOR PICK-UP. THEY MUST BE TAKEN TO ONE OF THE OUTAGAMIE COUNTY DROP-OFF SITES.

Please call the Outagamie County Solid Waste facility at 832-5277 with CleanSweep questions. Thank you. ◊
