Garbage Collection

The Village of Arena contracts with Pellitteri Waste Systems to provide garbage and recycling collection to the residents of the Village.  Garbage and recycle collections are paid for through the Village tax levy. 

Who do I contact if my garbage, recycling or yard waste was not picked up?
You should contact Pellitteri Waste Systems by calling (608) 257-4285.




  • You must use the carts provided by Pellitteri Waste Systems for your trash and recyclables. 

  • Regular collection day is Wednesday of each week.  In case of holiday, refuse will be picked up the following day.

  • You must recycle.  It is State law.  Also, the Village receives money from the State for recycling, thus limiting money needed through tax collection.

  • Anything that is recyclable can be recycled. 


Garbage collection days are every Wednesday.  You must have the refuse containers out before 6:00 am on the day of collection.  Collection will be one day late if holiday falls on the Monday or Tuesday before. Please refer to the calendar provided by Pellitteri. Click here to view the 2018 Calendar.


You should contact Pellitteri Waste Systems to arrange for pick up of items. 


Please DO NOT throw brush or leaves into the street.  Trimmings from trees and leaves  will be picked up on each Monday.  Leaves must be placed in bags and left close to the curb.  Trimmings from trees should be of manageable sizes and should be placed with the cut end facing the curb.  Brush and leaves should be placed near the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of pick-up.
