Historic Preservation awards
The City of Appleton Historic Preservation Commission invites you to participate in the nomination
of property owners of residential and non-residential property who have taken care to preserve the
property or have undertaken restoration or revitalization projects that have restored, rehabilitated and/or
preserved a part of the City’s historical resources. Two types of certificates will be given each year: one
for Stewardship and one for Historic Preservation/Restoration.
If you would like to submit a nomination/s for the Stewardship or Historic Preservation/Restoration
Certificate, you may pick up a nomination(s) form at City Hall in the Community Development
Department, or across from the cashiers (1st floor of City Hall), or online at www.appleton.org (under
Department of Community Development/Quick Links/Historic Preservation). Nominations received by
December 31, 2011, will be considered for the May 2012 awards program. For more information,
please call 832-6468.
neigHborHood Pride Program
Nominations for the June 2011 walter Kalata neighborhood Pride awards are now being accepted. The Program exists to honor Appleton
homeowners who have meticulously maintained or have made significant exterior improvements to their property that enhance the neighborhood
and community.
If you would like to submit a nomination(s) for the Neighborhood Improvement Category or the meticulous maintenance category, simply submit
forms online from the City’s website via Quicklinks at www.appleton.org or pick up forms at City Hall (1st floor Information Desk) or the
Appleton Public Library.
For nominations to be considered for the June 2011 awards, they must be received on or before May 15, 2011, in the Community Development
Department. If you have questions regarding any aspect of the Program, please call 832-5996.
terrace Planting information
Thinking of landscaping the terrace (the area between the sidewalk and the street)? Special plantings in the terrace area require a “Street Occupancy
Permit” so that safety and ordinance issues can be addressed. The permit must be requested for plants in excess of 3 feet in height, hedges, rocks,
railroad ties, loose stone, mulch or sand surfaces and vegetable plants. The permit needs the approval of the Municipal Services Committee and the
Common Council.
For questions or to request a permit, contact the Department of Public Works at 832-6474. For tree planting and other terrace tree maintenance
concerns, contact the City Forestry Division at 832-5580.
mailbox Placement
Proper mailbox placement is important for City crews as well as postal carriers. Snowplows, street sweepers and garbage
trucks can damage mailboxes that extend over the road. Please check your mailbox to make sure that it is in compliance with
Post Office guidelines. Mailboxes should be installed at a height of 42-48 inches from the road surface to the bottom of the
mailbox or point of mail entry, and set back 8 inches from the front face of the curb or road edge to the mailbox door. Where
there is no curb, the height of the mailbox should be 48 inches from the top of the ground to the bottom of the mailbox.
The City of Appleton will not be responsible for any mailbox damaged in the course of City operations that does not meet the
above requirements.
rummage sale signs
To help keep our city looking good and to comply with City ordinance, we would like to make you aware of proper sign placement. Advertisement signs,
including rummage sale signs, are not to be placed within the terrace area, on the sidewalk or on telephone or utility poles.
water Hydrant flusHing
The Public Works Department will again be flushing hydrants this spring and fall. Water mains are the big pipes that bring fresh water to your home.
Flushing removes natural minerals, like iron, which are harmless but can discolor your water.
If you see crews working in your area, please try to use as little, or if possible no water for an hour. Allowing the water to settle ensures that you won’t
draw discoloration into your water system. Dates will be announced when available through public service announcements, newspaper ads and the
City’s website at www.appleton.org. Questions? Please call 832-5580.

GARBAGE COLLECTION is done weekly from City-supplied garbage
containers. Please check www.appleton.org “My Neighborhood” for
collection dates specific to your address. Place your City garbage
container out for collection the night before your scheduled collection
day (between 5 p.m and 3 a.m.) with the handle facing your house.
Do not place your container within 5 feet of any object on the terrace
or park your vehicles in front of a container. Because of safety
concerns, never place a container in the road. Containers should be
returned to their point of storage before midnight the day of collection.
Please use plastic bags for items inside of City garbage containers.
Any bags that cause the lid not to close on City garbage containers
are considered overflow refuse (see next section). If your automated
container is too small, too large or needs repair, call 832-5580.
OVERFLOW REFUSE is defined as garbage or trash that would
normally fit into the City-supplied garbage container. Because garbage
container charges are based on volume, bagged garbage or trash
that doesn’t fit in your container must be marked with a disposal tag.
Bags should weigh less than 45 pounds. Up to 2 bags of overflow are
collected each week with a $2 collection sticker. Put overflow refuse
approximately 4 to 5 feet from garbage containers. Overflow stickers
should be attached to bags so as to be visible to drivers. If you are
moving or just cleaning out, you may request a special collection.
A fee is charged. Call 832-5580 for details.

Yard waste will be picked up curbside on the day following your
regular garbage day. If your garbage collection is on Friday, yard
waste collection will be done on the Monday before. For example, if
your garbage pickup day is Friday, April 22, put yard waste out for
Monday, April 18.
Yard waste must be in containers, lawn and leaf paper bags or
tied in bundles.
• Containers should have handles, be 33 gallons or less and
weigh less than 45 pounds when full.
• Branches and brush must be cut to 4-foot lengths and
bundled with twine. Bundles should be less than 2 feet
around and weigh less than 45 pounds.
• Lawn and leaf paper bags can be purchased at
most hardware stores and home improvement centers.
Please do not use plastic bags, boxes, tarps or 55-gallon fiber
barrels or their liners. In the event of a major storm, storm
pickup information will be distributed through Public Service
Announcements on the TV, radio and in The Post-Crescent. The
decision for storm pickup is determined on a storm-by-storm basis
and is determined by evaluating the severity and widespread extent
of the damage.
HAZARDOUS WASTE – CLEAN SWEEP – Some wastes are too
hazardous for landfills and require special disposal through
the Outagamie County “Clean Sweep” Program.
Hazardous wastes include: pesticides, herbicides, rodent
baits, acids and alkalines, lead-based paints, batteries and
Ca-49 appleguide spr/sum 2011.indd 8
some cleaning materials.
This program is limited to households only. An appointment is
required. For further information, call Outagamie County at
832-5277 (option #3) or check their website at
www.RecycleMoreOutagamie.org.
PAINT – Latex-based paint cans can be put in your garbage
container after lids are removed and the paint has dried out.
If you want to speed up the drying process, add sand or cat litter
to the paint. Any oil-based paint or paint containing lead should be
turned in to the “Clean Sweep” Program.
MEDICAL SHARPS – Under Wisconsin law, sharps must be
treated before disposal. Sharps users are encouraged to

disPosing of mercury
The Department of Natural Resources regulates the Appleton
Wastewater Treatment Plant for mercury levels in the plant discharge
prior to entering the Fox River. To prevent mercury from reaching
the Fox River, please remember that mercury should never be
poured down a drain or sewer, flushed down a toilet or thrown in the
trash. Mercury and mercury-containing items (e.g., thermometers,
thermostats and barometers) should be taken to the Hazardous
Waste Clean Sweep facilities for recycling (fees may apply). Compact
fluorescent lights (CFLs) contain small amounts of mercury. Some
area hardware stores accept CFLs at no charge.
For more information, please contact the Appleton Wastewater
Treatment Plant at 832-5945 or visit the Outagamie County Solid
Waste and Recycling website at www.RecycleMoreOutagamie.org.

If you live near a storm drain, then you live on waterfront property.
Anything that enters a storm drain, from grass clippings to pet
waste, goes directly to our waterways – not a wastewater treatment
facility. Pet waste, lawn fertilizer, even grass clippings and tree leaves
are all sources of phosphorous, the nutrient that turns our rivers and
lakes green with algae. Help protect our waters by making sure only
rain goes down the storm drain!

about WNV, visit our website at www.appleton.org and type in West Nile
Virus in the search bar at the top of the page.
Avoiding mosquito bites prevents getting WNV. Use insect repellants that
contain DEET, stay indoors during dawn and dusk, which are peak times
for mosquito activity, or wear long sleeve shirts and long pants. You can
also reduce mosquito populations by eliminating sources of standing
water where they breed, such as old tires, buckets and clogged roof
gutters. Changing the water in birdbaths every 3 days is also suggested.

The School Build Community Partnership blends
construction technology students from Appleton East,
West and North High Schools into an inspirational and
powerful workforce.
This special collaboration has built two houses and one
duplex, with a second duplex scheduled for 2011.
The partnership allows students to gain practical work
experience and valuable insight into their community while
learning what has to be done to create affordable housing
for people of all income levels and abilities.
