First I am going, to make a sort of an introduction;
I am representing the Brillion Chamber of Commerce as
as chairman of the Civic and Convention committee, which
consists of Dr. Goelz, Louis Mumm, Otto Arndt and myself.
My mission tonight is a rather an important one from a
standpoint of a sanitary measure and the welare of our
health.
For some time the Chamber of Commerce has felt that
Brillion should establish a garbage collection system.
At the last meeting, April 15th, the 27 members present
voted unattmously for iauch a program.
This dignified job of approaching the honorable body
of our city fathers in regard to this matter was wished
onto me,
e propose a garbage collection system operated by the
village and the cost to be taken out of the general fund.
Chilton has such a set-up and t;e different ones I iqter-
viewed said thiat it works out very-at     orily.;wn
They used to have the garbage collected byprivate parties
but it did not work out as--pwot * ,
It costs the city of Chilton between  1200 and .1300
annually, and they collect garbage, rubbish, ashes, paper
limbs of trees etc. but everything has to be kept seperata ,
either in containers or tied up in bundles and brought to
the curbing. They have ;home made incenerator and thef
up.&he paper and brd6Ahto burn up the garbage and rubbish.
",hen there isn't enough brush or paper they use drain oil
which they get at garages without cost. Collection is
miade once a week and the same men employed by the city
throue.hout the year do the work but one day is set aside
to collect and burn the garbage. T          two  ucks,4
a small one for   egarbage and Zhe larger      2tulkier  4
things. The ashes gthera
4s used as a fill-Y4 a certain location. In case of rain
thegarbage / bu         soon as weather permits. 44ey
al,5o used td   a  lot   of rats the same as here but
since the-town is kept-clean there isn't a rat to be-seen.
