Appleton will pick up bulk garbage more often in 2013

Garbage crews will double the number of times they’ll visit Appleton homes in 2013 to pick up bulk, overflow garbage.

The schedule has been to pick up free overflow garbage about once a month, but now large items will be taken away the same day as normal garbage pickup, beginning in January.garbage

“We want to get to the point that people have the larger recycling container, and reduce bags of trash, but still provide bulky pickup every other week,” said Todd Nett, operations foreman with Appleton’s public works department.

The overflow garbage program does not include electronic recyclables like TVs or yard waste, which have their own policies. Items like furniture or refuse that doesn’t fit in standard rolling bins fits in the bulk category.

Extra bags also still require the $4 sticker, Nett said.
