The standard cart size for the Village of Arena is a 95-gallon trash cart (brown) and a 95-gallon recycling cart (blue). There may be an 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 day for the Village of Arena is on Wednesday. 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 should 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 materials, electronics or hazardous materials in your cart.
Please click on "Recycle Info" under the "Additional Information" section above for a list of acceptable recyclables.
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. Please call us at (608) 257-4285 for more information on extra bag pickup charges.
Extra recycling will be picked up for free as long as it is placed in a clear, plastic bag (32-gallons or less and no more than 50lbs) and set next to your recycling cart on your recycling week. Extra cardboard should be flattened and placed in clear plastics bags as well. Do not tie or bundle cardboard. If you consistently have additional recycling, you could consider a larger or additional recycling cart.
Additional carts are available for an annual fee of $96.00 each. Please contact us for scheduling.
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 cubic yard containers to meet your needs. We recommend calling us prior to the start of your cleanout to set things up.
Please call us with details of the quantity and types of items you need to dispose of. We have a flat rate pickup schedule for bulky items such as stoves, refrigerators or freezers with doors removed, hot-water tanks, furniture, electronics and other large household items. We are happy to provide you with the bulky item disposal cost and instructions for disposal. Please call us at (608) 257-4285.
No. The carts are not to be taken from the existing household. They stay at the property for the next residents.
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 materials. If you have any additional questions please call us at (608) 257-4285.
