Trash & Recycling

Trash & Recycling General Information:

Trash and Recycling Service in the Village of Saukville is provided by Waste Management.  Collection day is Thursday, Friday when a holiday occurs earlier in the regular work week (Monday - Thursday).  Carts must be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on collection days.  Residents are urged not to place trash loosely in trash carts as this will lead to odor and pest problems as well as blowing materials when the carts are emptied.  Any trash or recyclable materials placed curbside in any container other than the carts will NOT be collected.

Carts must face the street as indicated by the arrow on the cart, must be fully accessible, placed side by side, and must be placed with a minimum 3 feet of space between carts and/or other obstacles.

Contact the Waste Management Call Center at 1-888-960-0008 for service related issues, including damaged carts and collection issues.

To set up New Service, contact the Village Public Works office at 262-284-0545 or Village Hall at 262-284-9423
