Rhinelander holding free bulk item disposal for city residents through May 24
RHINELANDER - You can finally get rid of the old fridge, sofa, or cabinet taking up space in your home the next nine days, if you live in Rhinelander.

The city is taking electronics, scrap metal, and large items you want to throw away for free between May 13 and May 24.

There are four dumpsters at the city Street Department on Washington Street behind the Forest Home Cemetery.  People can come between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the week, but you must show identification that you live in the city limits.

Rhinelander will also accept items specially this weekend, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday at the Street Department.

"A form of housekeeping that sometimes gets done and the more convenient it is made to be done, the more successful we are at pursuing it," Public Works Director Tim Kingman said.

Eagle Waste, which is Rhinelander's solid waste disposal company, will bill the city based on weight after all of the items are collected.

Kingman says the city will likely hold a similar collection before the winter in October.

The Street Department is located at 644 Washington Street across from the UPS shipping location.

A full list of items you can and cannot drop off is below.

Bulk Items: Non-metal items, furniture, carpeting, scrap lumber, mattresses, housewares, glass windows

Electronic items: Electronics, TVs, monitors, keyboards, stereos, amplifiers, printers, copiers, and DVD/VCR players.

Scrap Metal: Metallic materials and appliances (dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, vacuum cleaners, washers, dryers, and toilets) all without Freon in them.

Appliances: Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, freezers, and refrigerators without Freon.

PROHIBITED ITEMS:

Batteries (or other non-ferrous metals), fluorescent bulbs, antifreeze, paint, thinners or solvents, items with mercury.

Yard waste items are a separate pickup and will not be accepted.
