Update on GLSD’s Waste Management Services

We are nearly an entire year into our new Waste Management(WM) contract. While there have been a few hiccups in the change to single cart service, we feel our 1,400+ customers have handled the new system well. We want to make you aware of a recent change to our WM contract. We received many comments that the 18-gallon recycling bin is not large enough to hold all the recycling materials from a household for an entire month. Due to this feedback and the GLSD’s desire to promote recycling, WM and the GLSD have amended our solid waste contract to now provide a 64-gallon cart to replace the 18 gallon bin.
The cost for the new cart is only $6.00 per month per cart. As with the previous bins, the new recycling cart will be picked up the first Monday of each month. You may request additional recycling carts at a cost of an additional $6.00 per cart per month. If you are not currently a recycling customer with WM, you must call WM at (888)960-0008 to sign up for this service. Be sure to let them know you are within the Green Lake Sanitary District so you are charged correctly. WM invoices on a quarterly basis.
Please remember if you have bulky items that cannot fit into your WM cart, you can bring them to the GLSD’s Annual Spring Cleanup. Tentative dates for the event are Sat., May 23, 2020 and Tues., May 26th-Sat., May 30, 2020. More information on Spring Cleanup will be provided in our spring newsletter in early May 2020.
