Williamstown has a contract with the Landfill that allows for no-cost recycling. In fact, the more we can recycle, the more we SAVE because we're charged for non-recyclable waste over a certain tonnage. Soooo, our dump site is set up to help you recycle ALL your:
GLASS (food-grade only, any color; should be rinsed)
PAPER (newspapers, window envelopes, junk mail, magazines, phone books, "clean" food boxes & CARDBOARD ------------->please flatten cardboard boxes<--------------------
PLASTICS....YES!! Every number from 1 to 7....except styrofoam! Leave the caps on plastic drink bottles.
CANS (aluminum & steel; rinse), aluminum FOIL & BAKEWARE (rinse), AEROSOL cans (empty), WIRE COAT HANGERS
Click here for a great graphic that shows what can go in our recycling bins. As noted in the graphic, plastic bags and film can also be recycled but not in our dumpsters. Use the boxes found at most grocery stores and some department stores to recycle this type of plastic. This flyer from the DNR does a good job of explaining.
All metal and other non-food/drink cans should be dumped in the walk-in dumpster. The more weight kept out of the waste dumpsters, the better for the Town.
Clean Sweep is a program for recycling hazardous materials provided by Dodge County, usually every two years.
