Waukesha County Sealed Corridor Project

Village of Pewaukee Railroad Crossings


As indicated in a press release from the Federal Railroad Administration dated February 22, 2016, the State of Wisconsin was awarded a $3 million grant to increase safety at 10 railroad crossings in Waukesha County. Four of the crossings scheduled for safety upgrades are located within the Village. The proposed safety upgrades are summarized in the FRA press release provided below.

On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, representatives from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, Canadian Pacific Railway, Office of the Commissioner of Railroads, and the Village, met to conduct a field review of the four crossings within the Village in relation to the grant to verify crossing conditions as part of a fact-finding part of the planning process.

The grant and its components are administered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Common Questions and Answers regarding the new garbage & recycling pick-up in the Village of Pewaukee

Q. What if I occasionally have more refuse than can fit into the provided 64 gallon container?

A. The lid on the can does not need to be completely closed so you can place some bags on top of the container as long as they will not fall off as the container is lifted.

Q. What if I consistently have more refuse than can fit into the 64 gallon container?

A. Residents who consistently have more refuse than can be contained within the 64 gallon refuse container may request a 96 gallon container to replace the 64 gallon container.  The resident will need to contact the Village Hall at 262-691-5660 to request the container change.  Requests to swap out containers must be received at Village Hall by Wednesday for a container to be swapped out that same week.

Q. What if I consistently have more refuse than can fit into the 96 gallon container?

A. Residents who are in need of a permanent second container will need to contract directly with ADS for a second refuse container at a cost of $125 per year for a 64 gallon container. (cost for 2015)

Proper disposal of propane cylinders – June 15, 2015 Press Release

DO NOT put propane containers into your curbside garbage/recycling containers as they pose a very serious risk to workers from explosions caused when the pressurized containers are compacted.  During the last few weeks, multiple explosions have occurred at the Waukesha County/City of Milwaukee Materials Recycling Facility and even caused large fires.

Please dispose of propane containers properly, if you are unsure of where to take them, Click Here for a list of locations and businesses able to properly dispose of old propane tanks/cylinders.
