The Lomira Village Board has adopted a mandatory recycling ordinance and
a user charge system for the disposal of non-recyclable refuse.
The recycling program consists of curbside collection of recyclables on Wednesday
of each week. The village will provide an 18 gallon tub to each residence in one
and two family dwellings. The first tub will be free of charge. Additional or
replacement tubs will be provided at cost. Please use good judgment when placing
cardboard and paper materials for recycling. Do not put out on days when
precipitation is likely, or on very windy days, save them for next week’s
collection. Following is a list of materials which must be recycled, prohibited
materials, and preparation instructions:
|Glass bottles & jars
||window glass, cookware, drinking glasses, broken glass caps and neck rings
||rinse clean, remove
|Steel (tin) cans
||aerosol cans, paint cans
||rinse clean, remove label, flatten
|Plastic containers with No. 1 - 5 & 7 recycling symbols only
||toys, Styrofoam and other plastics
||rinse clean, remove caps, covers and rings

In addition, used motor oil and automotive batteries must be recycled. Motor
oil can be disposed of at retailers who sell oil, or by depositing in the waste
oil container located behind the Fire Station at 549 Church St. Motor oil
MUST BE FREE of antifreeze, paint and gasoline. Automotive batteries can often
be returned to retailers for credit. Flashlight and other batteries are not
For curbside pickup of non-recyclables, residents will be required to purchase
special clear, marked garbage bags. Two sizes will be available: a 17.5 gallon
bag and a 35 gallon bag. The bags are available at the Piggly Wiggly. Revenues from sale of the bags will finance collection and disposal of
non-recyclables. Absolutely no refuse will be collected if it is not in the
specially marked bags. Every year local municipalities are collecting more
and more waste. The majority of this waste ends up in landfill sites.
Each municipality has a goal to reduce the amount of waste and increase
recycling. This is the main reason the village has chosen a volume-based
system for refuse collection. The village requests that residents manage
their waste. By reducing waste and increasing recycling efforts, less
refuse bags need to be purchased by consumers which saves the consumer money and
decreases waste going to landfills.
Disposal of bulky items such as furniture and appliances is still available
through the village. A sticker which can be purchased from the village clerk
must be affixed to these items. The fees are as follows:
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers and other appliances
which contain freon. - $25.00
Washers, dryers, dish washers, stoves, water heaters, and other appliances which do not contain freon. - $15.00
Furniture and other bulky waste. - $10.00, $20.00, $25.00
Yard waste are collected by public works crews on Monday of each week.
Brush no larger than four inches in diameter and cut in pieces three to 10
feet in length will be disposed of with the village’s brush chipper. This
brush must be piled neatly at the curb with the butt ends pointing in one
direction. Yokes in branches more than one and one-half inches in diameter
must be cut through so the material can be fed into the chipper. All other
material which is too short to chip must be placed at the curb in
a sturdy reusable container such as a garbage can, barrel,
or pail for collection. From approximately October 15 to
approximately December 1, leaves must be placed on piles just behind the
curb, or at the edge of the roadway. Leaves in containers will not be collected.
As stated previously, recycling is mandatory. This information sheet is
intended to give residents a brief summary of the regulations which will
govern the village’s solid waste collection program as of that date.
Ordinance No. 217 establishes more detailed regulations and penalties for
failure to recycle, and for illegal waste disposal practices. Citizens
wishing to examine this ordinance may do so by contacting the village
The Lomira Village Board asks your cooperation in these programs so that
solid waste can be managed in an efficient, environmentally sound manner.
