2017 Garbage & Recycling Schedule
2017 Yard Waste Schedule
Yard Waste is accepted by the Town beginning approximately April 1st of each year and ends approximately November 15th. 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. Normal staffed drop off hours are every other Wednesday from Noon to 6:00 PM and every other Saturday from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. 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.

If a company/people stop at your door to drop off business cards/information, ask to see if they have a SELLER/PEDDLER/SOLICITOR PERMIT from the Town of Freedom. We have been getting reports of an asphalt company (driving a white truck) doing door-to-door sales. If they do not, please contact the Freedom Police Department 788-0902 or Town Hall 788-4548. They are not allowed unless they have a permit!
2017 Dog Licenses will be available at the Town Hall beginning December 15. The Town is reminding residents that by state law, the owner of a dog more than five (5) months old is required to obtain an annual dog license. You must bring in a current rabies vaccination certificate from a veterinarian in order to be issued a license.
Dog licenses are sold at the Town Hall, located at W2004 CTH S. Licenses issued after March 31, 2017 will pay an additional $5.00 late penalty and possible fines per Wisconsin State Statutes.
