Residential Garbage Service
Residents have a few options for refuse disposal.
First, except for those living in Augusta and Fall Creek, which have contracted with a single hauler for their respective communities, you can purchase service from the following companies:
- Advanced Disposal 715-839-9553
- Boxx Sanitation 715-514-2995
- ProVyro Waste Services 715-513-6686
- Tambornino Sanitation LLC 715-726-0293
- Waste Management 715-723-7241
Note that the companies do not provide service throughout all of Eau Claire County.
Each of the haulers offers volume based fee service, where you order weekly service for 30-35, 60-65 or 90-95 gallon carts and pay accordingly. In some areas, you may also choose between curbside service and up-the-drive service. Curbside is the default service and is less expensive. Advanced Disposal also offers their customers an alternative bag system, where you pre-pay for ten 35-gallon plastic bags which you set out when full on the day of the week they service your neighborhood. Generally, if you only fill up a bag once every two weeks or longer, this option is more economical.
Second, residents may use the following town transfer stations:
There is a charge for using these sites based on the amount of trash you bring in. The transfer stations also serve as these communities' recycling drop-off locations and the hours are the same as for recycling.
