RECYCLING IN THE TOWN OF WESCOTT
Recycling is MANDATORY in the Town of Wescott for ALL RESIDENTS!Recycling rules are as follows: All clean glass, tin cans, aluminum, plastics (1 - 7) and paper may be co-mingled in the same BLUE BAG. Corrugated cardboard must be flattened and bundled with string or placed inside another box. DO NOT use tape on cardboard bundles. Paper cardboard (example: soda & cereal boxes) may be placed in the blue recycling bags with plastic & glass items. Shredded paper may also be placed in recycling bags. Recycling items are collected every week on your regular garbage day. In the past, we have had residents express concern that the garbage and recycling is being placed in the same truck. The reason it appears this way is because the Town's garbage truck is a "split body" truck. One portion holds garbage and the other recyclables. So, not to worry...your recyclables are being properly collected !! In Wescott we recycle because it is good for our environment, our economy and because in Wisconsin, it's the law !! We appreciate your efforts in preparing your recyclables correctly and encourage all our Wescott residents to continue to do so !
