Slick roads scrap some Wausau garbage service


WAUSAU (WAOW) - Slushy snow in a hilly neighborhood of Wausau has forced the cancellation of garbage pickup because the trucks can't scale the hills, the mayor said Thursday.

Advance Disposal will not haul garbage in an area bordered by East Wausau Avenue north to Nina Avenue and North Sixth Street east to North 10th Street, the city said in a statement.

The city asks that all garbage containers be removed from the curb because snowplows will be clearing the streets Thursday night. Wausau received about 4 inches of snow Thursday.

Advance Disposal will not return to the neighborhood until next week, the city said.
