Home : Garbage & Recycling


Beginning August 1, 2015 - Brush (and all other items) can no longer be dropped off for burning at the Town Municipal Building. Brush, yard clippings and other items that do not get picked up curbside should be taken to the Outagamie County Landfill for disposal.



Garbage is picked up weekly:

Mondays:  State Road 96 and all roads South of State Road 96, all of County Road T and all roads west of T

Tuesdays:  North of State Road 96 and East of County Road T


 Recycling is picked up every other week. 

PLEASE NOTE: Recycling and garbage collection may or may not be on the same day.

Schedule pickup of old appliances and large items with Graichen Sanitation at 982-4116. As of January 1, 2015, the town switched to garbage toters that were delivered and will be maintained by Graichen Sanitation. If you have any problems with garbage pick-up, would like a 2nd toter, or your toter needs repair,  contact Graichen Sanitation. If your problems are not resolved call the Town Clerk at 779-4609.

Residents are asked to clean up their garbage on windy days.  This keeps the Town of Dale liter free.

PLEASE NOTE: Recycling and garbage collection may or may not be on the same day.

All recycling should be placed on the curb no later than 4:00 a.m. the day of pickup. If your recycling is not picked up please contact Inland Co. at 920-759-0501.

Recyclable paper, plastic, glass, tin and aluminum can be placed curbside mixed together in a reusable container. Reusable containers must be between 15 and 33 gallons in size with handles on the outside of them and weigh less than 50 pounds when set at the curb. Containers must be marked with an Outagamie County Recycling Sticker. Stickers can be obtained at the Town of Dale Municipal Building or Outagamie County Division of Public Works.

In conjunction with the tire recycle in April, we held the 2nd Electronic Recycle Event. In fall of 2014 over 10,000 lbs of recyclables were collected. In April 2015 we collected over 8,600 lbs of electronics. That is a lot of tons that are out of homes/businesses that did not go to a landfill.
