The Public Works Department oversees the collection of Refuse and Recycling for one, two, three and four unit residential properties in the City. Refuse and recycling collection is under contract with Waste Management, Inc. of Madison. No retail, commercial or industrial properties are included in the City’s contract with Waste Management.  

Waste Management provides weekly refuse collection and biweekly automated recycling collection. Waste Management sponsors a free E-Waste disposal day at the Public Works Drop Off Site to City of Verona residents. The exact date of the free E-Waste drop off will be printed on the third quarter utility bills annually. It usually takes place on a Saturday in October.  In addition the City provides E-Waste disposal at the drop off site to City residents for a fee. The special charge for refuse and recycling will be $176 for the year 2019.     

The City estimates collecting 1,600 tons of cardboard, newsprint, magazines and mixed paper, aluminum and steel containers, plastics, and mixed glass in 2017 at a projected cost of $158,255.  Each year city staff collects approximately 1,700 tons of yard waste and brush for an estimated cost of $255,000.  In 2016, the City recycled an estimated 2.5 tons of waste tires, 2,201 gallons of waste oil, and 92,000 pounds of electronic devices, 10 tons of major appliances and 1,000 pounds of lead acid batteries.  The department also estimates the collection of 2,500 tons of refuse from one to four unit residential properties at a cost of $398,450. It is anticipated that the City will receive $22,000 in recycling grant funds in 2018.
