New Trash “toters” Coming to Primrose in January

Town and Country Sanitation, Inc. is pleased to announce we will begin collecting garbage on an Every Other Week basis using garbage “toters”.  One (1) 95 gallon toter will be delivered to each home/residence in the Township of Primrose, on Saturday, January 7, 2017.  We will begin pickup using the toters on January 19, 2017.   These toters are the property of Town and Country Sanitation.  Any toter that is removed or damaged and needs to be replaced will be the responsibility of the property owner at a cost of $75.00 each.

You may use your current trash bins in addition to the toter – if you need to – through the winter.  Starting in the spring a new specialized truck with a hydraulic arm will be used to dump the toters.   Once the new truck begins trash pickup will only be done with the new toter. No other trash bins can be used.  All trash goes in the toters and the lid must close.  Trash outside of the toter or on top of the toter will not be picked up. 

Also we will now collect recycles on an Every Other Week schedule, along with the garbage pickup.  Residents will continue to use the 18 gallon “bins” or clear bags until Recycle Toters are delivered in the Spring.

Any questions can be referred to our office at 608-375-5856 or email us at

Also note that Primrose will have another large item pickup day:  On May 11, 2017 Town & Country will pick up large items that are too large for standard collection such as mattresses, rugs, garden tools, fencing, furniture, bicycles, etc.  Items that are NOT acceptable include tires, appliances, televisions, computers, and paint cans containing liquid paint.  If you are unsure of an item’s acceptability, please send a note to the town clerk at or call 608-318-4440.
