The Village of Fox Point 
Phone: (414) 351-8900

As many Village residents are aware, the Village drop-off site closed permanently on December 31, 2008. One question that has been raised consistently since the closing of the drop-off site is: "Where do I go with my garbage, yard waste and recyclables now that the drop-off site has closed?" This article addresses many, if not most, of the questions that have been raised on this matter.

Waste Disposal in Fox Point

The garbage or municipal solid waste (MSW), generated by propertyowners generally falls into a number of different categories: household hazardous wastes such as paint thinners, stains, and varnishes, etc.; appliances and white goods including refrigerators, dryers, and dehumidifiers; computers and other electronics; and other MSW that includes items like food scraps, non-recyclable containers and package wrappings. Much of the MSW generated by property owners can be reduced,reused or recycled and programs are available to residents to help them achieve that goal.

For those items that cannot be reduced, reused, or recycled, and which does not fall into one of the MSW categories described below, much of it can be discarded with your weekly rubbish collection. In general, the Village of Fox Point will collect up to approximately 1 cubic yard (cy) of rubbish from your residence each week without the need for a special pickup. To put it into perspective, 1 (cy) of material is roughly equivalent to three (3) 32 gallon containers. Anything beyond that, especially the large bulky items such as furniture (and yard waste which is covered later) will require a special pickup. Please call the Village Hall to coordinate special pickups. A special pickup is done on Fridays, costs $75 and includes two (2) DPW staff and two (2) pieces of equipment for 15 minutes. Items prohibited are identified in Section 24.027 of the Village Code and a list will be provided at the Village Hall upon payment of fee. Special pickups requiring more staff, time or equipment as well as an inordinate amount of material that requires an extra trip to the landfill or transfer station, will be assessed the actual cost of staff and equipment time as well as the disposal cost.

Also, if prohibited items are placed out for special pick-up, the items will not be collected and the fee may be forfeited by the applicant. Household MSW: Before throwing out your garbage, ask yourself: "Is there a better use for what I want to throw away?" For instance, food scraps can be combined with grass clippings and leaves as well as other organic material to create a composte pile. Compost is rich in nutrients and is a natural way of helping your garden grow.

Fox Point Yard Waste Disposal

Normal yard waste is picked up by Village DPW staff throughout the year. In the spring, all yard waste, other than tree waste,must be placed in decomposable paper yard waste bags or the items need to be containerized. The maximum weight for either container cannot be more than 50 pounds. These can be purchased at any local hardware or big box store. In the fall, yard waste can be placed out with your leaves and it will be vacuumed along with the leaves. Tree waste,such as branches and limbs, is chipped and may also be placed out as long as they are less than 6"-inches in diameter. Please place these items with the cut end facing the street and on an approximate 45 degree angle so that it is easier to grab the material with our equipment. Please also note that items greater then 6"-inches in diameter will require a special pick-up.

Tire Disposal in Fox Point

The Village does not accept or collect tires. The store from where you purchase the tires will likely accept your old tires if they replaced them with the new ones.

Any garbage cans that are placed in the road may be hit and it will be the responsibility of the homeowner to replace if damaged.

How Do Glendale Residents Dispose of Recycling Materials?

Residents should use the blue 18-gallon recycling bin that was delivered in 1995. If you recently purchased the home, the prior owners should have left the recycling bin, as the bin belongs to the property. If the previous owner did not leave the recycling bin, a new one must be purchased at City Hall or the City Services building. The cost is $10.00.

Recyclables should be co-mingled, except newspapers and magazines, which should be securely tied with twine (or paper bagged) and placed on top of the other recyclables in the bin.

Cardboard should be flattened and cut to a 2' by 2' size. Bundle with twine or tape into a stack no higher than 10 inches and place on top of the blue recycling bin. Residents may also bring large pieces of cardboard to the collection container located at the Glendale Municipal Yard. The container can be accessed from the south gate entrance at 5930 North Glen Park Road, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

All recyclable materials (paper, plastic, glass, metal) can be placed in the same recycle cart; there is no need to separate.  Residents are urged not to place trash loosely in trash carts as this will lead to odor and pest problems as well as blowing materials when the carts are emptied.  Any trash or recyclable materials placed curbside in any container other than the carts will not be collected. 

Large item pick-up service has not changed.  To dispose of large items, such as furniture, mattresses, and appliances, you still need to arrange for special pick-up or you can take items to  803 N. River Road,  West Bend.  There is a fee for large item disposal.    Residents generating large amounts of refuse should also arrange for special pick-up in advance before placing trash curbside, or arrange for dumpster service. 

Please note, due to changing financial circumstances and budgetary constraints, the Village Board has determined that it is necessary to charge a separate fee to one, two, and three-family residential properties for the cost of garbage and recycling collection.  This charge is included as a separate line item on the tax bill.  The charge is for your next year's garbage and recycling collection.

Does the city pick up brush and tree limbs from my home?
