The Village of Spencer is getting roll out garbage and recycling carts. Advanced Disposal will be dropping off new garbage cans starting August 27th. Start using these cans as soon as you get them. The first week of September will have the current pick-up schedule with collection happening on Thursday, September 6th, due to the Labor Day Holiday. The following week, and every week after, garbage and recycling will be picked up on Friday morning (except when a holiday falls in the week like the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas then Saturday). A calendar will be included in the brochure attached to your carts.  As before, garbage and recycling must be placed curbside the night before or prior to 7 am on collection day.

When placing the carts out, they should be no more than three feet from the curb and at least three feet from any other object such as parked cars, light poles, mail boxes and other carts. A suggestion is to place one cart on each side of your driveway.

You may keep your old red 18 gallon recycling container, but DO NOT put it on the curb for pick-up.  Garbage and recycling that is not placed in the newly provided carts will not be picked up after Sept. 6th.

As a reminder, electronics, appliances, auto batteries and yard waste will not be accepted.  Recycling can all be placed in the provided cart.  No sorting is necessary.  Do not cram cardboard or items in the carts as it will not be picked up if it doesn’t dump out. If you have any questions, please contact the Village Office at 715-659-5423.
