Garbage and Recycling Answers

Garbarge Bins are provided to VILLAGE RESIDENTS ONLY!

Village residents can take garbage and sorted recyclables to the Village dumpster site located at 130 E. Elm St.  Open Wednesdays from Noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to Noon.  Specific dumpsters within the dumpster site have three uses:

  1. Garbage
  2. Cardboard and paper; ALL boxes must be broken down before disposal.
  3. Commingled: plastic, glass, tin cans, and aluminum cans.

Please use the correct dumpster, the recycle dumpsters are labeled on the front.

Plastic bags are not recyclable.

The Scoop on Leaf and Brush Pickup

For Village Residents, the Public Works employees will pick up at curbside:

Leaves & Grass Clippings

Your leaves and grass clippings at curbside on Monday’s starting April 12 to November 1, 2021.

Reminder: Leaves must be in containers, boxes, or plastic bags, and to limit each container to  50 pounds or lessNo garbage, tin, or aluminum in clipping containers. Note: It is preferable to put in containers as they are easily dumped into their truck bed.


Brush will be chipped by a local vendor.  To expedite the chipping process, branches should be piled large end curbside. Brush chipping is scheduled from May through September.

Note: Any brush chipping taking longer than 15 minutes will be charged back to the resident.

Construction and/or Demolition Materials

For Village Residents Only: Disposal of demolition materials is the responsibility of the owner. Roll off containers can be obtained from local disposal companies such as Waste Management, Inc. 1-800-782-7347.  From time to time there may be room to add small amounts of demolition materials to the dumpster at the end of the collection day.  These small amounts of demolition materials will not be accepted until 15 minutes before dumpsite closing and then only if there is ample room in the dumpster.

Aluminum Cans for a Cause; You Can Help!

Your aluminum cans CAN make a difference in our community! By dropping off your aluminum cans at the Village Recycling area at 130 E Elm Street, you can help the New Auburn Park Fund! All money raised from this fundraiser is used for improvements at the Village Park including the playground equipment. Please be sure to recycle them in the proper dumpster. Feel free to contact us at the Village Hall at 715-237-2223 if you have any additional questions.

Fire Burning Permits

Burning permits are required for the New Auburn village residents, burning such materials as:

  • brush,
  • leaves,
  • scrap lumber or similar material,

on your own premises, if you have space to do so (30 feet from any building, etc.)

It is unlawful to use burn barrels or incinerators for burning garbage, at any time.  Permits are issued by an officer of the New Auburn Area Fire Department, phone 715-237-2103.


In 2020, the Village of New Auburn recycled an estimated 74.74 tons of cans, plastics, cardboard, glass, and paper.

 Previous years totals on cans, plastics, cardboard, and glass:

2020: 74.74  |  2019: 70.58  |  2018: 130

Recycling Guide: Tips to Help in Preparation!

  • Rinse cans, jars, and bottles – recyclables are not stored in plastic bags, rinsing reduces the odor and reduces the number of insects that are drawn to the decaying food.
  • Metal food cans, and aerosol cans (remove plastic caps). Labels do not need to be removed. (Labels such as Campbell soup labels are used for fund raising by local schools - recycle them too!)
  • Glass bottles and jars (green, brown, and clear) (remove caps, rinse clean, and do not break). Labels do not need to be removed.  DO NOT include window glass, light bulbs, mirror glass, ceramics, and other glass.
  • Plastic (collapse bottle, rinse and remove caps) include #1 through #7, commonly found on bottom of soda bottles, milk jugs, detergent bottles, etc.. DO NOT include motor oil containers, toys, or plastic wrap.  (Milk caps are used for fund raising by local schools, recycle them too!)
  • Corrugated cardboard and gray cardboard should be collapsed flat and cut into 3 ft x 3 ft pieces.
  • Please contact your local schools and non-profit organizations for donation possibilities. Certain product labels, milk caps, printer cartridges, etc. provide many fund raising opportunities for them. Non-recyclable bowls and magazines may be used by various classes for craft projects.
