Garbage / Recycling

The Village contracts with Waste Management (formerly Advanced Disposal) for automated curbside trash and recycling collection. Trash is collected every week and recyclables are collected every other week. All residents should use the carts provided for garbage and recycling- items not contained in the carts will not be picked up without making special arrangements with Waste Management. Collection day in the Village is Thursday. If a holiday falls on a Thursday or any day earlier in the week, collection day will be Friday. Carts should be out by 7am on collection day.

On collection day, carts should be placed on a relatively flat surfaceeither the tree border or drivewaywith the handles and wheels facing away from the street. Carts should be within two feet of the curb, and have three feet of clearance from other objectsmailboxes, vehicles, etc.all the way around.

Winter Parking Regulations

Sec.10-1-29   Parking Prohibited Regulations.


(a)     Winter Parking.   When signs have been erected at the corporate limits of the Village of Fall River as provided in Sec. 349.13, Wis. Stats., no person shall park or leave standing on any Village street any vehicle or trailer between 2:00 a.m.  and 6:00 a.m.  on any day from November 1 to April 1, except medical and public safety personnel on emergency calls. In addition to the issuance of citations, Village law enforcement officers shall have the authority to have towed to a designated place, or a place where parking is permitted, any vehicle parked in violation of this Section when such vehicle interferes with the removal of snow. Actual charges of such towing and removal shall be assessed against the driver or party responsible for the violation.

Water / Sewer

Village of Fall River residents are billed monthly for water, sewer and garbage collection. Utility customers who do not make payment before the due date listed on the billing will receive a ten-day disconnect notice. Payment must be made within ten days to avoid having water service disconnected.

It is illegal to discharge clear water from a sump pump or downspouts into the sanitary sewer. Doing so burdens the sanitary sewer collection and pumping system and can result in increased operation, maintenance, and treatment costs. Excessive discharge of clear water into the sanitary sewer can result in sewer backups and damage to property. Discharge of clear water should be directed in such a way as to avoid being a nuisance or danger to others.
