GARBAGE CART SERIAL NUMBERS - IMPORTANT!
Due to recent thefts of garbage and recycling carts, the City of Port Washington is requesting that all residents record the serial numbers of their garbage and recycling carts and report these numbers to the Department of Public Works. Starting May 1, 2013, any garbage and/or recycling cart that is stolen from a residence, and the property owner and/or the City does not have the serial numbers, will have to pay Advanced Disposal to replace the garbage and recycling cart.
You may report your serial numbers by calling 262.284.2600 or by filling out our convenient online form.
If you discover sewage backing up through your basement floor drain, you are asked to please notify the City prior to contacting a plumber. This allows the City to determine whether the blockage causing the back-up is located in the sewer main or in the sewer lateral. If the blockage is in the main, City crews will be able to correct it in the shortest time frame possible. If the blockage is in the house’s lateral, City crews will instruct you to call a plumber.
Please contact City Hall if you experience a basement back-up at 262-284-2600 during normal business hours, or, outside of normal business hours, contact the Port Washington Police Department at 262-284-2611.
