Vernon County Solid Waste/Recycling
*** Clean Sweep Program***
Fall Clean Sweep will take place at the County Landfill on Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. both days.
As part of the annual Clean Sweep, the Vernon County Solid Waste Department is also offering free drop off of all types of paints and related products at the county landfill, Saturday, Aug. 29, and Saturday, Sept. 5, from 9 a.m. until noon both days.  Solid waste staff encourages anyone with a large amount of paint products (more than 12 gallons) to drop off paint on one of these Saturdays. 
The Vernon County Sheriff's Department has agreed to provide an officer at the site, so the solid waste department will provide collection of expired or unneeded medications during this event.
Residents are reminded of the following:
  • Be aware that some chemicals are incompatible with other chemicals and need to be kept separated.  All materials should be delivered in their original containers if possible.
  • If a container is leaking, place it in some form of secondary containment such as a pail, drum or some other leak-resistant container.
  • If a farm or household is planning to bring in a large load (more than 250 pounds), a load of several drums, or a load containing unusual wastes, contact the solid waste department prior to the event.
  • Ammunition or explosives, radioactive waste or gas cylinders cannot be accepted.
Contact the solid waste department at 608-634-2900 for additional information.

Stop Running Water

posted Apr 14, 2014, 9:55 AM by Lynn Joholski

Thank you so much for your cooperation during this very long and difficult winter.  It is now safe to stop running water in your home.  We adjusted the March water and sewer billing to reflect December 2013 billing.  In June we will once again review the bills and adjust for the additional water used during the first few weeks in April.  Since there is no way to determine exactly how much extra water ran during this period, we will be using averages from past billing.  If you are new to the Village and do not have a billing history, we will try to determine a fair usage by reviewing your current water usage.  Again thank you and if you have any questions don't hesitate to call the Village office at 452-3168.

Run Water in Your Home to Prevent Freezing Lines

posted Feb 10, 2014, 12:47 PM by Lynn Joholski

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - The Coon Valley Municipal Water Utility is requesting Village residents to run their cold water a pencil size stream in one faucet of their home.  Running a thin stream of cold water will help prevent freezing of water lines.  Please run water until further notice.  We will have announcements on local radio and television stations notifying residents when they can discontinue running water.  Your March water/sewer bill will be adjusted to allow for the additional water use.  If you have any questions, please call the Village Office at 452-3168.
