Garbage and Recycling

Garbage is picked up every Thursday and Recycling is collected every other Thursday. Calendars are available at Village Hall all year long.

2020 Calendar

Garbage or Recycling Containers left at the end of driveways, on curbs or in the street for extended periods of time could result in the containers being picked up and taken to the Public Works Garage. Residents will need to pay a fine to the Village in order to get your trash container back. Please remove carts from the curb as soon as possible after the refuse is collected. Thank you.

The Village of Dane contracts with Advanced Disposal for curbside pick up of trash and recyclables. If a holiday falls on a day before trash collection day, trash pick up will be on Friday of that week. Advanced Disposal Trucks may start as early as 7 am to collect trash and recycling. Please place carts at the end of your driveway and not in the street. Point the cart front to the street, so the lid opening is facing away from your house. Give the carts plenty of space. Please allow four feet between carts and other objects and ten feet from cars parked on the street.

Please remember to separate your recyclables from your garbage. Failure to keep trash and recycling separate may result in the trash not being picked up.  Please follow this link to learn more about what should be recycled.

With single-stream recycling you do not have to sort your recyclables. You can mix everything together. The following  is a brief list of items that can be recycled:

  • Cardboard and mixed paper including newspaper, phone books, beverage cases, cereal boxes, computer and copy paper, junk mail, magazines, file folders and steel/tin can labels.
  • Plastics numbered 1-5 and 7 (rinsed clean) including 5-gallon pails (wire handles removed). No food take out containers.
  • Glass (rinsed clean), bottles and jars. No lids or window glass.
  • Alumium, steel, and tin cans (labels removed and rinsed clean).

Due to changes in the law, the village can no longer pick up refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or any other appliance that contains Freon. Please keep this in mind when buying new appliances. Contact Advanced Disposal at 608-251-7878 for pick up of these types of items. Advanced Disposal charges a fee for collecting these items. You can pay them over the phone with a credit card.  Ask Advanced Disposal for more information.

Please note that if you have additional bags that do not fit in your container, you should contact Village Clerk's Office to purchase tags to place on extra bags. Advanced Disposal will not pick up garbage bags on the curb without labels. All excess bags at the curb must have a lable to be picked up. Five (5) tags cost $20 and do not expire.  Call or stop by the Clerk's Office for more information.

Please contact Advanced Disposal for the pick up of large items- 608-807-3240.  A list of items and fees are available HERE or from the Clerk Office. 


The Dane Dandy Doers 4-H Club has a container for aluminum cans at the Town of Dane Garage, 213 W Main Street, Dane.

Holidays that effect trash and recycling pick up include New Year Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If the week contains one of these holidays, expect the trash pick up day to change. Please review your calendar carefully and abide by the pick up days reflected on the calendar. Calendars are sent in the tax bill, the utility bill, and always availabe at the Village Clerk's Office.
