If your items were not collected as expected, you may contact Public Works (262) 375-5325 or email and we will contact Waste Management on your behalf. You may also contact Waste Management directly at 888-960-0008.
Typical Items collected include:
Household refuse: It is optional to place household/kitchen refuse/waste in bags, however carts will remain cleaner longer if a bag is used and less debris will blow out of the cart when emptied
Carpeting / furniture / lumber: All items must fit into the cart. If items are too large for the cart, you will need to arrange a special pickup with Waste Management - (888) 960-0008. (Fees will apply)
Construction waste: Provided the resident performed their own work and the materials are placed in the cart and do not prevent the lid from from being closed
Paint cans (latex): Paint should be in a dry or hardened state. Floor dry or kitty litter can be used to achieve this, cans should then be placed in the cart
Christmas wreaths and garland (trees are chipped by village crews separately)
This is one of the most common questions. Mattresses are large and if the company you've purchased a new mattress from does not haul the old one away, what can you do with it? The Village of Grafton does not pick up or routinely offer a location for drop-offs of mattresses.
The Village does offer several "dumpster days" during summer months. Please see the Recycling Calendar for dates and details.
Ozaukee Iron & Metal (728 Schmitz Dr - Port Washington, 262-284-4060) accepts mattresses for a fee.
