We could use your help: We have an issue on Birch Lane with some items that are being left for garbage pickup and items in the dumpster.
Roofing materials such as tar paper and shingles need to be taken to the landfill yourself and disposed of, they cannot be put in the regular garbage.
Paint cans must be open, empty, and dried before they can be put in the garbage. Wet paint and or stains, etc. will not be picked up…they spill in the truck and end up running
on the roadway, that is not acceptable…..a definite no-no with the DNR also.
Please help us educate our neighbors and residents…..4-Season Disposal does a great job of collecting for the Town of Pella, we as a township do not want them getting
into trouble at the landfill for items that by State Statute must not be in the garbage. The landfill raised their rates four times in 2022 to have the hauler take garbage and recycling there,
it is only a transfer station, everything is then moved out to various locations. And, another known fact, is that within 10 years Shawano may close all together and that means haulers
will be transferring the added costs to take everything further away onto us, the residents.
Thanks for your help. Have a great, safe summer.
