Garbage and Recycling Collection:
Southwest Sanitation (637-8010) located in Viroqua is the Village garbage and recyclable hauler. Garbage pickup is every Monday. Recyclables are picked up every other Monday. Please have your garbage and recyclables out on the street by 7 a.m. Click on "Residential Services" and then "Yard Waste, Trash Collection and Recycling" for the 2015 schedule. The recycling service uses a commingled system which means all recyclables can be put in one container and do not have to be separated. You can use the blue, plastic recycling containers or you can put your recycling in clear, plastic bags.
A friendly reminder from Southwest Sanitation: Garbage Bags should be tied when they are set by the curb and should weigh less than 50 pounds.
Prices for garbage bags are as follows:
Large bags - $1.95 a bag or a pack of 10 for $19.50.
Small bags - $1.20 a bag or a pack of 10 for $12.00.
The large bags are blue and the small bags are clear with “Southwest Sanitation” printed on them. Bags will continue to be sold at the Village Office, Chances Are Flower Shop, Main Street Mercantile and Kwik Trip. The Village office will sell small and large bags in packs of 10. Kwik Trip sells only the large bags in packs of 10. Chances Are and Main Street Mercantile sell bags individually.

Important message from the Public Works Department - Do not flush Flushable Wipes or Depends down the toilet. They clog up the lift station pumps.
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.
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.
