Do not put any trash outside the cart without calling Pellitteri Waste Systems first (608) 257-4285. Depending on the amount and type of material we will ask for prepayment and will give you special instructions. If it is a small amount you may be able to wait until the next week to fit it in the cart.
Additional carts are available for an annual fee. However we would urge you to make sure that you are recycling as much of your material as possible.
The standard cart size is a 35-gallon trash cart (brown) and a 35-gallon recycling cart (blue). Please contact your homeowner's association or Pellitteri Waste Systems at (608) 257-4285 to discuss other options.
The normally scheduled service day is Wednesday. Please refer to the calendar for your specific service day. Trash is collected every week and recyclables are collected every other week. Recycling carts put out on a non-recycling collection week will not be picked up. Residents must have their carts out by 6:00 am. Pickup times may vary from week to week. Trash and recycling are picked up at separate times during the day.
Carts should be placed at the end of your driveway and be within two feet of the street. The carts should be placed on level ground, and should be at least four feet from any obstacle such as utility poles, mail boxes, trees and parked cars. The handles of the carts should face your house so that the lids open properly when being dumped.
Only household trash can be put in your cart. Do not place recyclables, construction materials, demolition, or hazardous materials in your cart.
The automated collection program is not intended to provide this type of service. You have several options. Please call us at (608) 257-4285 for a phone quotation for one of our temporary dumpsters. It is best to arrange for this type of dumpster service prior to beginning the work. Also, check to see if we are running any special pricing or coupons in your area.
Please call us with details of the quantity and type of item. We have a flat rate pick up schedule for Bulky items such as stoves, refrigerators with doors removed, hot-water tanks, furniture and other large household items. We will give you the cost and instructions when you call us.
No. The carts are property of Pellitteri Waste Systems and need to stay at the house.
Please call us at 608-257-4285. The carts are the property of the contractor and we will take care of any normal wear and tear, or damage by our trucks. There is a fee to the resident if the cart is damaged or stolen while in their custody, and not caused by the contractor.
The automated cart dumping process lifts the container upside down and stops with a slight jolt. If the material is wedged tightly the material may not come out. Please put the heavier items in the bottom of the cart and do not compact the material.
