Cart Exchange Program
All residences are given 95 gallon containers to start. Residents may request a change in cart size by contacting the Village of Waunakee at (608) 849-5712. Please be prepared to provide a name, address and phone number, your existing cart size and replacement cart size. The cart sizes (35, 65 or 95 gallons) are indicated on the bins themselves beginning with a T for trash or a R for recycle. There is no fee for this exchange, however cart exchanges are only done once per month. Once you have placed your order you will need to bring your old cart to the Public Works building at 504 Moravian Valley Road any time after the first Monday of the following month to make the exchange. We ask that you call ahead to (608) 849-5892 to make sure there are personnel available to assist you.
Pellitteri also offers a curbside exchange for your convenience. The cost is $45 and the exchanges are done on a weekly basis. Please contact Pellitteri directly at (608) 257-4285 for payment and scheduling.
New Home/Business Set-Up
Each property address is allotted one trash and one recycling bin. These bins stay with the property permanently. The cost for this service is charged on your Waunakee Utilities bill each month. For new home construction, you will need to set up the utilities in your name by calling (608) 849-8111. Then you can call Pellitteri at (608) 257-4285 to schedule delivery of your new bins.
If you consistently have additional recycling despite the new weekly recycling service, you may want to consider a larger or additional recycling cart.
