Mercury and mercury-containing items (e.g., thermometers, thermostats and barometers) should be taken to the Hazardous Waste Clean Sweep facilities for recycling (fees may apply). Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) contain small amounts of mercury. Some area hardware stores accept CFLs at no charge.

GARBAGE COLLECTION is done weekly from City-supplied garbage containers. Please check www.appleton.org "My Neighborhood" for collection dates specific to your address. Place your container out for collection the night before your scheduled collection day (between 5 p.m. and 3 a.m.) with the handle facing your house. Do not place your container within 5 feet of any object on the terrace or park your vehicles in front of a container. Because of safety concerns, never place a container in the road. Containers should be returned to their point of storage before midnight the day of collection. Please use plastic bags for items inside of City garbage containers. Any bags that cause the lid not to close on City garbage containers are considered overflow refuse. If your automated container is too small, too large or needs repair, call 832-5580. OVERFLOW REFUSE is defined as garbage or trash that would normally fit into the City-supplied garbage container. Because garbage container charges are based on volume, bagged garbage or trash that doesn't fit in your container must be marked with a disposal tag. Bags should weigh less than 45 pounds. Put overflow refuse approximately 4-5 feet from garbage containers. Up to 2 bags of overflow are collected each week with a collection sticker. The cost is $2 for each sticker. If you are moving or just cleaning out, you may request a special collection for $40. Call 832-5580 for details.

Solid WaSte diSpoSal/ColleCtionS

The disposal charge is reduced when appliances are brought to the Municipal Service Building Customer Service Center located at the Yard Waste Site. See the Yard Waste Drop-off Sites article on page 9 for drop-off fees.

TREE FOR A TREE

Bring your Christmas trees to the Glendale Avenue Yard Waste Site at 2625 E. Glendale Avenue during the following scheduled times and participate in Appleton's annual "Tree for a Tree" program: January 3 ­ January 15 Monday­Friday..............7 a.m.­ 5:45 p.m. Saturday.........................9 a.m.­ 4:45 p.m. Participation is limited to City of Appleton residents. One coupon, redeemable in the spring for a White Spruce seedling, will be issued for each tree brought to the site (no limit). Exchange dates will be announced in the next City Guide issue and through a general press release. Christmas trees are chipped for use as landscaping material that is available free to Appleton city residents. For residents not participating in the program, trees will be collected curbside on the regular refuse day during the week of January 17. In case of bad weather, tree collection may be extended into the following week until skipped areas have been collected. After that, trees must be brought to the Municipal Service Building Yard Waste Drop-Off Site, or removed from the curb until the brush collection in April. Please remove plastic tree bags.

WINTER SNOW GUIDELINES

With winter coming, the Department of Public Works would like to offer a few guidelines to follow for safer winter travel: · Snowplows can generate flying sand, salt and swirling snow making it difficult for plow drivers to see you. Because snow equipment may need to slow down, stop or back up, please stay back, be patient and don't pass a plow on the right side. · Per City ordinance, never dump, plow or blow snow into a City Street. Dumping snow into the street creates a safety hazard and increases City costs by forcing additional plowing and salt applications. · The more snow we get, the more road narrowing becomes a problem. Please do not park vehicles on the street following a snowfall. Working around parked cars and garbage cans in the road does not allow plows to get close to the curb as well as costing additional tax dollars for work to be re-done later.

2010 LEAF COLLECTION

See Leaf Collection map on page 15.

Leaf collection is for non-woody yard waste such as leaves, grass clippings and other small yard and garden waste (to dispose of larger yard waste, see page 8). Leaf collection begins October 11 (see map dates), with collection at approximately 2-week intervals. If weather prevents collections, we will maintain our original schedule and attempt to cover the skipped areas at the end of each workday. No area will be skipped for two consecutive collections. Rake leaves and small yard and garden debris into the gutter or to the edge of the pavement beginning October 9 and ending November 21. DO NOT RAKE LEAVES INTO THE GUTTER AT ANY OTHER TIME. Please keep piles low so that children are not hidden from motorists' view and close to the curb so as not to interfere with traffic. During leaf collection, City crews will collect leaves from the street gutter only. Leaves should be raked into the gutter by the night prior to collection. No bags or containers will be collected. Leaves on the following streets will be pushed into piles on side streets as often as possible, but due to heavy traffic, residents are encouraged to transport leaves to the yard waste sites rather than raking them into the gutter. Both sites are open through November 20, with the Glendale site open year-round. Ballard Rd. College Ave. Newberry St. Calumet St. Meade St. Oneida St. Wisconsin Ave. Richmond St./Memorial Dr. Mason St. (north of Prospect Ave.) Lawe St. (from College Ave. to Wisconsin Ave.) If weather permits, there will be one additional non-scheduled pass through the city after November 22. Snow may prevent us from doing this additional leaf collection. If weather prevents the City from completing the leaf collection, residents are responsible for leaf disposal. The Glendale site is open year-round. No additional special collections will be scheduled. For more details, call the Municipal Service Building at 832-5580.

Because it is crucial to our leaf collection operations to be able to work during the night, starting October 11, the Police Department will not grant permission for overnight parking in areas that are affected by leaf collection. Vehicles that are illegally parked overnight (between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.) will be subject to ticketing and towing. Thank you for your cooperation.

SCHOOL BUILD COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

The School Build Community Partnership between the Appleton Housing Authority and the Appleton Area School District blends construction technology students from Appleton East, West and North High Schools into an inspirational and powerful workforce. This special collaboration has built two houses and one duplex, with a second duplex scheduled for 2011. The partnership allows students to gain practical work experience and valuable insight into their community while learning what has to be done to create affordable housing for people of all income levels and abilities. This innovative partnership is a vital part of the Appleton Housing Authority's outreach in our community. To help continue this worthwhile partnership, we welcome your support. Send your tax deductible donations to Neighborhood Housing, Inc., at 925 W. Northland Ave., Appleton, WI 54914 or contact Debra at 920-739-6811 ext. 104 for more information.
