Important Change in Garbage and Recycling Collection Southwest Sanitation located in Viroqua is now 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. Recycling service has changed slightly. They use a commingled system which means all recyclables can be put in one container and do not have to be separated. You can continue to use the blue, plastic recycling containers that you used in the past or you can put your recycling in clear, plastic bags.
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.
