According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household. And as people scramble to get the latest and greatest gadgets, they leave behind a large number of outdated, unwanted products we call electronic, or “e-waste,” which can create a big problem environmentally.
The City is partnering with a local resource to provide a "White Goods Collection" day. Date, time and location will be advertised on the electronic city sign, in the local shopper, and flyers will be available at city hall as well as sent out with the utility bills.

Leaf pickup is generally near the end of October. Exact dates will be announced once set.
Leaves should be piled in the street gutter.
NO BRANCHES OR OTHER DEBRIS SHOULD BE MIXED IN WITH LEAVES!
If branches or other debris found, the leaves will not be picked up.
Remaining leaves after the last leaf pickup date can be hauled to the City dump site.
If leaves are placed in gutter after last leaf pick up date, a fine may be issued.
These dates need to be scheduled a year in advance, and unfortunately there is no way to know when the leaves will all be off the trees. The City appreciates your patience and understanding in this matter.
Please contact City Hall with any questions 715-223-3444.
