June 14, 2022: Denmark, WI – The Village of Denmark will begin rolling out new garbage and recycling carts for residents in late June as it officially launches its cart-based service. Garbage collection will continue on a weekly basis and recycling will be collected every-other-week, both on Tuesdays.
With this new collection program, residents will be able to place garbage and recyclable items directly into the new, larger, 96-gallon garbage and recycling carts. The carts will be arriving at residents’ homes from June 27 through July 1. The recycling carts will replace the smaller bins currently used for residential recycling and come with wheels for easy maneuvering and attached lids to keep recyclables dry and secure.
Residents can begin using their new carts right away. Garbage will continue to be collected weekly, while recycling will now be collected every other week beginning Tuesday, July 5 at 5:00 a.m. Households will receive a calendar of the new collection schedule attached to their recycling cart, and they can also refer to the Village website for a schedule at https://denmark-wi.org.
The Village of Denmark applied for and received a grant from The Recycling Partnership, a nonprofit organization that works with city governments nationwide to transform their recycling programs. Denmark was selected to receive grant support because of its dedication to advancing recycling in the community. The grant from The Recycling Partnership will help pay for over 800 new carts and includes funding for education and outreach about the new collection process.
“The Recycling Partnership is excited to work with the Village of Denmark to improve the community’s recycling program,” says Haley Gabbard, Community Program Manager at The Recycling Partnership. “The additional space and increased frequency of collection will allow residents to recycle more which means capturing more valuable recyclables needed to make new products and packaging.”
The Village asks residents to continue to do their part by placing only recyclable materials in their carts, including aluminum and steel cans, glass bottles and jars, paper products (including newspapers, flattened cardboard, and empty pizza boxes), food and beverage cartons, and empty plastic bottles and containers. To help limit contamination, give food and drink containers a quick rinse and then place them directly into the recycling cart.
Some items that cannot be recycled in the cart include plastic bags, paper towels, electrical equipment, batteries, and propane tanks. These items often get mixed into recycling carts because of “wishcycling,” or the hope that they can be recycled. While well-intentioned, non-recyclable items cause serious issues for workers at the processing facilities.
