Garbage and Recycling

Residential waste disposal is contracted with Republic Services. The City of Spooner has been using the cart system through Republic Services since 2012. There are three different sizes of carts (35 gallon, 65 gallon and 95 gallon) for the garbage service. Please contact the City if you need a different size cart. We also have an option of having two of the larger carts for additional fee. The recycling cart is only one size. We have the convenience of every other week pick up. The recycling cart has a green lid to help differentiate between the two carts. Both carts need to be put at the curb with the opening of the cart facing the road. The recycling cart is only to be used for recycling and will not be emptied if there is garbage in it. Please contact Republic Services if you need to request a special item be disposed of. The phone number for Republic Services is 1-800-542-2124 or 715-234-8076. Businesses may use the service provider of their choice. Republic Service and Waste Management are two providers for this area.

Current Year Recycling Calendar can be found under Documents – Spooner Utilities.
