    Annual Waukesha County Recycling Event Schedule

    Refuse and Recycling pick up
    The pick up for your home will be weekly on Friday. All waste should be placed in containers no larger than 30 gallons and not weighing more than 50 pounds. Pick up will be made from outside and next to your garage. Collections begin at 7:00 am. Please make sure your garbage is available for pick up by that time. Please do the following:

    • Place your recyclables on your driveway where crews can access it and be visible from the street.
    • Materials should be rinsed, clean and ready for collection by 6:30 am.
    • There are no limits on the amount of recyclables that will be picked up. Additional recycling that does not fit in your recycling bin should be placed in an extra garbage can or plastic container.

    Household Hazardous Waste

    Household hazardous Waste (HHW)
    The Village works with Waukesha County to provide residents a responsible solution for disposing of household hazardous waste.

    Waukesha County operates four (4) year-round household hazardous waste drop-off sites for residents and four (4) special one-day collections in spring and fall. Verify that your items are acceptable waste (PDF) and make sure to have proof of residency when bringing items to any HHW site. There is no fee for this service.

    More information can be found on the Waukesha County website here.

    Drug Collection 
    Hartland Police Department collects drugs as a on-going community service program. Prescription drugs have an impact on many different populations — drug abuse among teens and other populations, as well as accidental ingestion by children or senior citizens. With proper disposal of these drugs, we are able to help protect our community and our environment.
