All recyclables are placed loose into the same dumpster. Please flatten cardboard boxes before placing them into the dumpster. Rinse plastics, tin and glass clean of product residue.
The recyclables are taken to a center where a machine separates them. Therefore please do not tie the recyclables together, do not place boxed recyclables into the dumpster, and do not place bagged recyclables into the dumpster.
Single stream recycling includes #1 and #2 Plastic bottles and jars, Aluminum containers, Bi-metal cans, Glass containers, Steel (tin) cans, Corrugated cardboard, Office paper, Newspaper and newsprint, Magazines, catalogs, and other materials on similar paper.
All trash must be contained in Town of Lucas trash bags to be tossed into the Town waste dumpster. The bags are available for $1.50 each at the Bob & Steve’s BP Station in Knapp, Torch’s Valley Bar, and the Kyotes Den Bar & Grill. These businesses are distributing the bags as a service to the community; all proceeds from the bag sales are applied to the Town’s cost of the trash disposal.
Spring and fall cleanup dumpsters at the Lucas Town Hall
Most of the items that do not fit in Town of Lucas trash bags will be able to be disposed of in the Spring or Fall cleanup dumpsters. Extra charges may apply to some of those items.
Menomonie Disposal offers a home pickup service for many items.
Thank You, Town of Lucas
