Your aluminum cans 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 donated to the Boy Scouts of America, locally.
Fire Burning Permits
Burning permits are required for the New Auburn village residents. Burning is allowed ONLY by permit with the New Auburn Fire Department. Burning brush, leaves, or scrap lumber all requires a burning permit. 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.
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.
- DO NOT PLACE ANY RECYCLABLES IN PLASTIC BAGS!
- 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.
