City of Sun Prairie

YARD WASTE UPDATE: The City of Sun Prairie has rescheduled its curbside yard waste pickup that was originally scheduled for the week of 5/8/23-5/12/23. It has been changed to the week(s) of 5/30/23-6/9/23 (appx). Please have your containers or bags out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, 5/30/23. This will likely take at least 2 weeks. 

Please be aware that we will need to strictly enforce the existing policy that plastic bags must NOT be tied shut. Plastic bags that are tied shut will not be collected. This has always been the policy, but has not been strictly enforced previously. Tying your plastic bags shut requires the crews to cut each one open, which greatly increases the time of collection and expense to the City. Please leave lids off of reusable containers and poly bags untied as well. Compostable bags can be shut, however, as the whole bag will be taken. 

For questions regarding your service, contact us below or call 608-257-4285.

Please make sure your carts are out by 7:00 a.m. to ensure service.

    FAQs for the City of Sun Prairie


    Carts should be out by the street by 7:00 am. The time your trash or recycling is picked up may vary from week to week. Both trash and recyclables are collected every week. Trash and recycling carts are collected separately and may be serviced at different times of the day. 

    Some items may be taken to the City of Sun Prairie Recycling Center, such as non-freon appliances. Please click here for the City's website with more information. For items that that cannot be taken to the Recycling Center, please make a list of the items you would like to discard, including the type of material they are made out of, then contact us. We will give you options, instructions, and schedule your pickup on the next available date. There is a fee for this service; we're always happy to recommend additional options if they are available.
