Household hazardous wastes, paint, and chemicals are not to be disposed of in the trash. Items that contain the following require special handling and disposal:
Please use your county's household hazardous waste program.
Do not put batteries in the carts—they can ignite and start a fire. Visit Call2recycle.org for a nearby drop-off site.
Do not place any hot ashes in the carts—you will start a fire. You are responsible for any damages to the carts.
*Dane County Clean Sweep is also available to Columbia County residents. Residents outside of Dane and Columbia may pay a higher rate.
Do NOT put any batteries in your trash or recycling containers. They can ignite and start fires.
If you need to recharge an item, then it has a battery. Don't throw it out.
Check Call2recycle.org for a nearby drop-off site.
