Very recently, the Cityís waste management provider, Badger Disposal, sold their business to another vendor, Advanced Disposal. Advanced has already begun collecting trash and recycling. With the transition, there may be some initial issues with timing of collection and other matters. The City is working with Advanced on these issues. If you have questions or see anything of concern with what you see on the collection, you can contact Advanced Disposal directly at: (920) 387-0987, or City Hall at 623-5900 and we will assist with your questions. Thank you for your patience as we work to manage this change.
