Hazardous Household Waste Disposal (Winnebago County)
Single Stream Recycling
Single-stream recycling allows you to place all recyclable commodities, such as paper, cardboard, steel, plastic, tin, aluminum and glass, into one collection cart. Blue bags for recycling will no longer be acceptable at the Tri-County recycling facility. In order to facilitate a smoother recycling commodity separation process, we ask that you do not place any type of plastic bags inside the blue recycling collection cart. Single-stream recycled items require loose placement within the collection cart.

Automated Garbage and Recycling Collection
Curbside garbage collection in the City of Omro is fully automated for both trash and single-stream recycling. This means that a garbage truck will pull up to the curb in front of your residence and by use of a mechanical arm system, will pick up, dump and return your cart(s) to the curb. You will use two 96-gallon wheeled carts to facilitate your trash and recycling collection.
Each cart has the City of Omro logo on them along with the appropriate Trash Only or Recycling Only indicators. Each cart will also have a serial number embedded and assigned to your specific address. This list of serial numbers and address identifiers will be available to the city in electronic format to research ownership of a particular cart, if necessary.
These carts will be owned and paid for by the residents. The price of both carts is $136.00 including curbside delivery. The carts are under warranty for ten (10) years for normal wear and tear and will be replaced by the vendor/city in the event of damage by this means.
Each 96-gallon cart will hold an average of four 30-gallon garbage bags, as the bags are generally not filled to full capacity. The city’s current collection ordinance allows for each residential household to place four 30-gallon garbage bags curbside each week. Items in excess of this amount need to be contracted for pickup individually with Veolia Environmental Services. This policy will not change with the new cart automated collection system. If you find your household in need of trash collection in excess of what can be placed inside your 96-gallon cart, you will need to make special arrangements for pickup of the excess trash. You should not place any trash items outside of your cart. These items will not be picked up as part of your normal garbage collection service.
