Public Notices & Agendas

LARGE ITEM DROP-OFF – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5th

The Town is hosting another large item drop-off on Saturday, October 5th from 8 a.m. to noon.  NO drop offs the night before.  Dumpsters will be available in the Town Hall parking lot.  Bring help if necessary, as you will need to unload your items into the dumpster. 

In an effort to limit drop offs by non-residents and keep costs low to continue offering this service to our residents, you may be asked to provide current proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, utility bill, lease, etc. that shows your address in the Town of Springfield.  Please come prepared to show such proof of residency if asked. 

Large items allowed include: furniture, rolled carpet and lumber up to 4’ maximum length, mattresses/box springs, non-metal doors, wood windows, toilets, sinks, water softeners and humidifiers (but NOT dehumidifiers).  Items excluded include, but are not limited to: tires, used oil, compost materials and automotive or marine batteries.  There is NO electronic drop-off at the Fall event (TVs, DVD players, computer and office equipment, microwaves, or other Wisconsin landfill banned items).

A reminder that hazardous materials (paint, pesticides, petroleum products such as oil and solvents and explosives) are not accepted.  These can be dropped off at the Clean Sweep program at 7102 US Hwy 12, Madison.  If you are not sure about an item, please call us ahead of time and we will check with Advanced Disposal to see if it is acceptable. Volunteers to help with this event are always appreciated. Call the Town Hall at 849-7887 if you can help for a few hours.
