2024 Garbage and Recycling Service Funding Change

GFL

2024 Garbage and Recycling Service Funding Change

The general tax levy has historically covered garbage and recycling expenses. Due to rising costs, expenses have surpassed the allocated revenue in the tax levy. These rising costs have affected other village services and have prohibited much-needed equipment purchases for the public works department. 

 Due to these rising costs of garbage collection and revenue constraints, the Village Board has decided to enact a garbage and recycling fee, which is allowable under Wisconsin State Statue §66.0627.  As part of this move, the general tax levy will be reduced by 13.7% on this year’s tax bill. 

 In exchange, you will see new fees reflected in your quarterly sewer bill. The two new fees will show up as:  
 $30.00 – Garbage Fee

$10.00 – Recycling Fee

 It is important to note that the village was able to lock in a cost-effective contract with GFL that goes into the year 2031. 

 Thank you for your understanding. Any questions can be directed to the clerk-treasurer at clerktreasurer@howardsgrovewi.gov or by calling 920-234-0304.
