Garbage and Recycling

GREAT NEWS: YOU NO LONGER NEED A GARBAGE CALENDAR  STARTING JANUARY 1, 2019 GARBAGE AND RECYCLING WILL BE PICKED UP WEEKLY

September, 2018, Chairman’s article

There will be major changes in our garbage and recycling contract with John’s Pickup Service beginning January 1, 2019.

Many residents have requested a weekly pickup of recyclables. We anticipate that this will increase recycling and be an additional convenience. Along with the weekly recyclables pickup beginning in 2019, there is also a provision for pickup of certain electronic items. (Certain restrictions apply. Please see information in this newsletter and on our website.) Another major change is that there will no longer be town wide pickup of bulk items on the third Friday of each month. If you have a bulk pickup, you will need to call John’s at least 72 hours in advance. There is no additional charge. This is part of the new contract and you will only be allowed one bulk pickup per month. This is a major convenience for those who don’t wish to wait a month to dispose of their bulk items. You will need to remember, however, that one electronic item will be considered your bulk pickup for the month.

2019 costs to our residents are as follows: $12.29 per unit per month for disposal service and $5.20 per unit per month for recycling service, for a total yearly cost per unit of $209.88. The contract also includes twice a year special yard waste drop off at the Town Hall.

Tax Collection

TAX COLLECTION

Your first installment should be made payable to the Town of Genesee.  Please include the bottom portion of this bill and a self-addressed stamped envelope for return of the tax receipt.  Make checks payable to the Town of Genesee PO Box 242, S43W31391 HWY 83 Genesee Depot, WI  53127.  All bills will be sent directly to the property owner—NOT TO THE MORTGAGEE.  Internet access is available for inquiries regarding mortgage payments, assessments, lottery credit, etc.  (www.waukeshacounty.gov).

If your escrow check is for more than the tax amount, we suggest that you return it to your lending institution and have them cut two checks, one for amount of your taxes and the balance to you. Refunds WILL NOT be issued on day of payment and by town ordinance will take at least 30 days from date of payment.

RECYCLE MORE!!

Genesee residents can now recycle almost all plastics #1 - 7 including toys, lawn furniture, laundry baskets, buckets and landscaping items.  Plastics not acceptable are: Styrofoam, films, bags, and containers that previously held hazardous waste e.g. motor oil containers.  A reminder that cartons (i.e.juice boxes, soup cartons, milk cartons) are also recyclable.

Click here for Waukesha County Recycling information

Used motor oil & oil filters:  All Firestone Stores, Walmart Tire Centers and O’Reilly Auto Parts stores are among several businesses in the County that accept oil and oil filters for free; no purchase necessary. Most businesses that provide oil change services follow this policy. In addition, John’s Disposal will pick up properly contained used motor oil in quantities of 1-5 gal curbside on ‘bulk’ pickup days. The City of Waukesha also accepts used motor oil, oil filters, and antifreeze from any County resident at their recycling center on Sentry Dr.
