Sanitation & Recycling

The City of Badger contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection. Monthly charges are billed on your city combined utility bill.

Most trash, when contained properly, can be disposed of at curbside on the weekly garbage service day. If assistance is needed or you have questions for the city, please do not hesitate to contact us. 


The City encourages recycling.  A recycling drop box is located on the north side of the City Maintenance Shop.

If the RECYCLING BIN is FULL do not leave items - please do not leave items that are not recyclable. No garbage allowed. The bin is emptied once weekly.


Effective July 1, 2024 the city will contract for garbage pickup with Speedy Dump. Garbage carts will be picked up on Thursday.  If you have problems with your trash pickup, please call Speedy Dump at (515) 332-3867.
