Change of Service Alert per Advance Disposal due to COVID-19

A Letter from Advance Disposal

March 20th, 2020

 

Attention: COVID19 Update

To Our Valued Municipal Customers:

Advanced Disposal’s motto is “Service First, Safety Always”. At Advanced Disposal, safety is of utmost importance and should not be ranked as it is our lifeblood: the safety of our employees, our customers and the general public wherever we are operating. As the world is adjusting daily to the challenges that COVID19 is creating for all of us, rest assured we are prepared to continue providing our essential services to you and your residents. As a company, we are implementing policies and procedures to ensure that our employees are as safe as possible while performing our services, and to keep our customers and the public safe as well.

EFFECTIVE MARCH 23, 2020, ADVANCED DISPOSAL WILL NOT COLLECT ANY TRASH/REFUSE OR RECYCLING THAT IS NOT CONTAINERIZED

  • All trash/refuse must be bagged and placed in containers AT THE APPROVED DROPSITE LOCATION:
    • Memorial Park (Wisconsin Avenue)
  • Recycling must be placed LOOSE in the recyclable receptacle, EXCLUDING plastic bags.
  • Materials prepared incorrectly will not be collected;
  • ALL MANUAL COLLECTION WILL BE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The COVID19 pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to our personal and professional lives, and Advanced Disposal is not immune to these events. At this time, we are adjusting our workforce and practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC): cleaning and disinfecting, social spacing, remote workstations, etc.  

In terms of our frontline services and collection services, we are providing a public health service and will continue to deliver our services as efficiently and effectively as possible. We stand ready to adjust as needed as more waste materials move from the commercial/industrial sector to the residential sector due to school closures, reduced hospitality/leisure activities and reduced commercial/industrial activities.

Lastly, communication will be very important over the next few weeks. We know how much your community relies on our services, and we truly view our relationship as a partnership. As of this time, all disposal facilities are operational and we are operating as close to 100% workforce as possible in providing collection services. In the event of any issues that could affect collections in your community, we will be reaching out immediately to advise of the issue, and determine a response that works for both partners. Each day we are receiving more information which causes adjustments, but we want to make sure our partners know as soon as possible to avoid confusion or add stress to an already challenging time. Please continue to visit our website, at https://www.advanceddisposal.com/wi/de-pere/green-bay-collection to remain informed with Service Alerts.

Thanks for your partnership,

ADVANCED DISPOSAL

ROAD CLOSURE 

Hager Road
Village of Denmark

 

The Village of Denmark Public Works Department will be closing Hager Road from Schleis Lane to Rosecrans Road, beginning Friday, October 11th, 2019 @ 9AM. The road will not be open until reconstruction is complete in 2020.

❄️SNOW SEASON 2019/2020
As we head into the winter season the Village of Denmark Public Works Department wants to send a friendly reminder in regards to snow and ice removal on sidewalks fronting properties.
Per Village of Denmark Ordinance Section 260-5, the property owner is required to clear the sidewalk fronting their property within 24 hours of a snowfall. If a property owner does not clear the sidewalk within that timeframe, the Village can clear the sidewalk and invoice the property owner for the cost of the maintenance.
Most property owners do a great job in keeping sidewalks clear after snowfalls and that is most appreciated. The Village of Denmark Public Works Department appreciates your understanding and cooperation as we all attempt to keep our traveling public moving in a safe, timely and efficient manner.

Recommendations for new sidewalks and driveways are as follows:

 

* Prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the concrete especially during the first winter. This is especially important when the ice and snow have been treated with de-icing components. Freezing and thawing with moisture present along with de-icing materials on the concrete produces one of the harshest conditions for concrete surfaces.

* De-icing chemicals should be avoided, especially the first winter. Sand should be used for traction.

* Never use de-icers containing fertilizer ingredients such as ammonium sulfate, ammonium nitrate, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride. These chemicals will attack and destroy concrete by chemical reaction.
