Drug Collection

DEA National Rx TAKE BACK DAY is Saturday, April 28, 2018!  The Village of New Glarus has a drug collection drop box located in the lobby of the New Glarus Village Hall that was donated by the Monroe Clinic Foundation. The public is welcome to dispose of unwanted or expired medications in the drop box anytime the Village Hall is open. Please do not deposit any liquids, syringes or infectious waste into the drop box.

Storm Drain Cleaning

Storm drains and ditches catch rainwater run-off from Village maintained streets. The Village Public Works crew works through the year to clear storm drain catch basins to prevent blockages that may lead to road flooding during snow melt and large rainfalls. This includes street sweeping in the spring and fall vacuuming in the fall. 

We ask residents to keep an eye on the storm drains near their residences, and contact the Village Public Works Department at 608-527-2097 during regular office hours or 608-558-5773 on evenings or weekends, if you notice any debris that needs to be cleared. Please do not dispose of leaves, grass clippings, or any other debris in the storm drains or drainage ditches!
