  • New Trash Collection System

    People in La Crosse and Onalaska are learning how to use a new garbage collection system in 2014. New carts for trash and recyclables have been delivered to residents. Trucks are picking up the carts mechanically. The new system is designed to save money and increase recycling. We talk with officials from La Crosse and Onalaska about changes in garbage collection and how the changes are going so far.
