Despite collecting bulbs, computers and electronics on an on-going basis, Winnebago County still partners with the Oshkosh Chamber to hold these events, where the limit of four computers/television per person does not apply and business material is accepted. Fluorescent bulbs and other types of bulbs, PCB and non-PCB ballasts, computers, monitors, televisions, cell phones and other electronics will be accepted for recycling. We will update the website with the 2017 date(s) when they become available.

Please see a list of FAQ’s pertaining to Trash and Recycling in the Town:

(Q) Where do I get a new trash or recycle receptacle and what is the cost?

(A) New trash and recycling containers are available at the Town Hall and cost $70 each.

(Q) Who do I call if my trash was not picked up on a regular pick-up day?

(A) We ask that you check the 2018 Trash and Recycling Calendar first to ensure it wasn’t a Holiday delay or other event. If not, please call Advanced Disposal directly at (800) 688-4285.

(Q) Does the town pick-up yard debris?

(A) No.  Residents can bring their yard debris to the Winnebago County Land Fill located off of Jackson Street. All material must be covered with tarp when entering their facility. If you decide to burn your yard debris in a controlled environment, we ask that you please contact the Van Dyne Fire Department (920) 688-2293 and advise them of the location of your burn. In addition to the Van Dyne Fire Department, please also contact the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department non-emergency line at (920) 236-7300. If you decide to burn, please be courteous to your neighbors!

(Q) What day is the trash picked up in the Town?

(A) The normal pick-up day for both trash and recyclables is Wednesday. Please put your carts out early and have them at least 3 feet apart to allow for the truck arms to pick up the containers. Please refer to the 2018 Trash and Recycling Calendar for information.  Please use etiquette on the day of pick-up and return your carts to the residence within a reasonable timeframe. We ask that the carts not be left at the end of the driveway beyond the day of pick-up if possible. Doing so will not only eliminate the possibility of your carts being damaged but it will also avoid the expense of replacing your carts ($70 each).

(Q) What do I do if I have light bulbs, waste oil, anti-freeze, electronics or items like that I needs to dispose of?

(A) If you are uncertain about what to do with a specific item, please review the 2018 Trash and Recycling Calendar as numerous items including those mentioned should be brought to the Winnebago County Household Hazardous Material Collection Facility at 105 W. County Road Y, Oshkosh WI or simply call them at (920) 232-1850 with any questions you may have.

(Q) Who do I call if I see trash dumped on the side of the road in our Town?

(A) Please contact the Town office at (920) 688-1404 and report the location of the garbage/trash. Unfortunately, our clean town and others near us are the targets for non-residents to “DUMP” their trash such as tires. We ask that if you see someone dumping trash in the town, do not put yourself at risk but report what you do see as soon as possible to the town or the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department (920) 236-7300.
