BURNING OF LEAVES, BRUSH, CLEAN WOOD OR OTHER VEGETATIVE MATERIALS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS
The burning of all leaves, brush, clean wood or other vegetative materials in any residential area is strictly prohibited. Any burning of leaves, brush, clean wood or other vegetative materials outside of any residential area is allowed but only with an approved permit from the hours between 4 PM and 9 PM.
Burning Permit Application
Yard Waste is accepted by the Town beginning approximately April 1st of each year and ends approximately December 1st. Yard waste can be disposed of at the Town Garage located at N4245 County Highway E. Yard waste drop off is open to residents of the Town of Freedom only and contractors are not permitted to dump yard waste. Valid ID and/or proof of ownership may be required. Drop off hours have been revised for more convenience to property owners. Beginning approximately May 15th the site will be open 24 hours a day for grass and brush drop off. Acceptable materials include grass clippings, leaves, brush, and tree limbs. Stumps and garden plants will not be accepted.
Trash & Recycling Container Placement
Please remember to properly place your weekly trash and recycling containers along your street. The containers should be positioned four feet from the paved road surface for roads with ditches or as close to the backside of the curb as possible for roads with curb & gutter. Properly placing the containers allows the snow plowing crews to do a better job of plowing and also minimizes the potential for damage to the containers. Garbage and recycling bins should be placed by 5am along the road/curb for pickup.
