We enjoy serving the Town of Dunn with our automated system for the collection of your trash and all-in-one recycling.
The standard cart size for the Town of Dunn is a 35-gallon trash cart (brown) and a 65-gallon recycling cart (blue). Should you require a larger trash cart, there is an annual fee payable directly to Pellitteri Waste Systems (there is no annual fee for a larger recycling cart). There may be an additional exchange fee required to change your cart size(s). For information on changing cart sizes please call Pellitteri Waste Systems (608) 257-4285.
The normally scheduled service days for the Town of Dunn are Thursday or Friday depending on the location of your home. Please refer to the calendar in your delivery packet for your specific service day or the service map on this website. Trash is collected every week and recyclables are collected every other week. Residents must have their carts put out by 6:00 am. Pick-up times may vary from week to week. Trash and recycling carts are serviced at separate times during the day. Recycling carts put out on a non-recycling collection week will not be picked up.
Carts should be placed at the end of your driveway and be within two feet of the street or curb area. The carts should be placed on level ground and should be at least four feet from any obstacle such as utility poles, mailboxes, trees and parked cars. The handles of the carts should face your house so that the lids open properly when being dumped. Carts cannot be collected if they are improperly placed. In the winter you may need to shovel out areas for your carts just like you do for mail delivery. Please do not place carts in the street.
Only household trash can be put in your trash cart. Do not place any recyclables, brush/leaves, construction materials, demolition, electronics or hazardous materials in your cart.
If it is a small amount of extra trash you may want to consider waiting until the following week to have it picked up in your cart. If you have an extra bag of trash, we will pick it up for a pre-paid nominal fee. If you frequently have extra trash, you may want to consider upgrading to a larger trash cart. Please call us at (608) 257-4285 for more information on extra bag pickup charges and/or a larger cart (cart upgrade).
Additional carts are available for an annual fee. Please contact Pellitteri Waste Systems at 257-4285 for pricing and options. We urge you to make sure that you are recycling as much of your waste stream as possible.
The automated collection program is not intended to provide this type of service. Please call us at (608) 257-4285 for a phone quotation for one of our temporary dumpsters. We offer 6, 12, 20 and 30 yard containers to meet your needs. We recommend calling us prior to the start of your cleanout to set things up.
At least once a year, the Town of Dunn has a free curbside pickup event (typically either in June or October or both). During these events, extra bags, furniture items, and miscellaneous items are accepted for free curbside pickup. When the events are scheduled, they will be posted on our website and include the list of items that will or will not be collected along with any preparation guidelines. The Township usually has them in their newsletters as well.
Throughout the rest of the year or for items not accepted in the clean-up events, please call us with details of the quantity and types of items. We are happy to provide you with the bulky item disposal cost and instructions for disposal, as well as alternative disposal options if available.
No. The carts are not to be taken from the existing household.
Please call us at (608) 257-4285. The carts are the property of Pellitteri Waste Systems. We will take care of any normal wear and tear or damage done by our trucks. There is a fee to the resident if the cart is damaged or stolen while in their custody.
The automated cart dumping process lifts the cart upside down and stops with a slight jolt. If the material is wedged tightly in the cart the material may not come out. Please put heavier items in the bottom of the cart and do not compact the material.If you have any additional questions please call us at (608) 257-4285.
