The Village of Oregon is divided into 3 geographic areas for refuse and recycling collection
The standard size carts in the Village of Oregon are the 35-gallon trash (dark brown) cart and 65-gallon recycling (blue) cart. 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 carts should be at the street by 6:00am on your scheduled pickup day. After your cart is emptied, remove it from the street that day. If you don’t know your scheduled pickup day than please refer to our Oregon map on our website.
Carts should be as close to the street as possible, but no further than two feet. The cart should be placed on level ground, and should be at least three 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 lid opens properly when being dumped.
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.
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. 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 scheduling and/or options for a larger cart (cart upgrade).
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. You have several options. For our company options you can call us at (608) 257-4285 for a phone quotation for one of our temporary dumpsters or click here for more information. 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 per item flat rate pick up fee for bulky items such as stoves, refrigerators with doors removed, hot-water tanks, furniture, and other large household items. Please contact us for the cost and scheduling.
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.
