Single Stream Recycling:

The Town Board recently approved single steam recycling. The new system will use the "wheeled cart" just like your garbage/refuse cart.  Collection will be with the automatic arm.  
Single Stream Recycling allows a wider range of materials to be collected, and ALL the recyclables (paper, plastic, aluminum) may be placed in one container.  The cost of the new service will be aprox. $11 per residence per year.  This will be added to the cost of refuse and recycling already being placed on the tax bill as a special charge.  The 2014 tax bill showed a $112.00 fee.  The 2015 tax bill is expected to show a $113.00 fee.  The 2016 tax bill is expected to show a $123.00 fee.  The new rate takes into account the anticipated savings in refuse tonnage fees, estimated to be 10% or more.  It is anticipated the new program will begin April 1st, 2016.  More info to come.

  • RECYCLING CARDBOARD: Boxes should be broken down, bundled and placed next to or on top of the recycling bin and covered if it is going to rain.  Corregated cardboard has a wavy layer between the inner and outer sides. Cereal boxes, soda cartons, beer cubes, etc are not corregated cardboard and should be placed in the trash.(posted 9/13/2014)
  • 911 SIGNS: Project to replace all the 911 signs in the Town is underway.  New signs have been installed along Hwy 33, 35 and Co Road K. Project will be completed over the next two to three years.  New posts with fire numbers (same fire number/address, no new numbers) will comply with Federal mandates on size and visibility of address.  More information to follow as details of the project are completed.

  • There is a serious problem with dog feces being left in the parks!  It should be picked and taken home, not left in refuse containers at the parks or thrown in the bathrooms.  If the problem continues, dogs will be banned from all Town of Shelby parks.  Those who use the parks for other activities and park maintenance staff should not have to deal with your dog feces.  We are also having reports of dogs running loose in Pammel Creek Park and Mormon Coulee Park.  Dogs must be on a lease at all times outside of your yard.

  • DUMPSTERS: Town does not allow dumpster or other obstructions to be placed on Town right-of-way.  Permits are available for special circumstances. (posted 4/13)
  • Town right-of-way extends 10-15 feet beyond the edge of the road.  This area is used for snow storage when snow is pushed back away from the road and sometimes the plows tear up the sod and dirt.  Generally the property owner will be responsible for repair. (posted 1/14/2014)
  • A permit is required for Drive Way restructuring, resurfacing. There is no fee for this permit. We just want to make sure culverts are in good condition and the water flow is moving the way it needs to move. (posted 4/7/2015)
