Advanced Disposal is the handler of waste and recycling in the City of Schofield. Our goal is to make recycling as easy as possible for you. Changes have been made in the sorting of recycling materials. The color of your bins does not matter.
PLEASE REVIEW THESE IMPORTANT GUIDELINES:
Residents MUST use a garbage container that is is no larger than 30 gallons, of substantial construction with a tight fitting cover, strong handles, and is watertight. Landlords MUST provide a container for their rental properties. Garbage containers may be rented directly from Advanced Disposal, phone 715-359-6637.
Residents MUST put their container curbside prior to 5:45 a.m. of pick-up day but NOT earlier than 5:00 p.m. on the day before pick-up. Container MUST be put away from curb by 8:00 a.m. the day after pick-up.
Residents are recommended to put their trash in plastic bags and not in paper grocery bags or boxes.
Container MUST be stored out of view from the front of your house.
Yard waste MUST NOT be mixed with solid waste.
Up to 60 pounds of small items and materials can be placed curbside every week to be collected. Residents who are working on a large construction project and the material exceeds 60 pounds, can call Advanced Disposal at 715-359-6637 to rent a dumpster.
During Holiday weeks, always expect a pickup a day later, after scheduled Holiday.
(ex. Memorial Day, Monday’s pickup will be Tuesday, and everything that week is a day later.)
