  Reporting Health Concerns or Problems Caused by

Environmental Lead Exposure 

To report or discuss concerns regarding adverse health effects from exposure to airborne, leaded aviation gas emissions from Morey Airport aircraft overflights, please contact: 

 

Public Health Madison & Dane County, Environmental Health Phone Number: 608/242-6515 

 

There is no safe level of lead in humans, particularly children with developing brains.  https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/lead/health-effects.htm   

Morey Airport produces 32% of airborne lead emissions in Dane County.  Dane County has the second highest airborne lead emissions of all 72 counties in Wisconsin (WI DNR). 

Primary prevention is key.  Breathable airborne lead is one of the most dangerous ways to be exposed to lead.  "...[The body absorbs higher levels of lead when it is breathed-in.  Within our bodies, lead is absorbed and stored in our bones, blood, and tissues. It does not stay there permanently, rather it is stored there as a source of continual internal exposure."  https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/lead/health.html

Important Reminders from Pellitteri
         Tipped Over Carts: We are experiencing a high volume of carts being tipped over prior to our trucks arriving. Drivers are not able to collect carts that are knocked over and cannot get out at every stop to upright them. If you can, please set the carts upright prior to our arrival so they can be serviced.
         Cart Placement: To help with plowing efforts and help prevent tipped over carts, please place your carts on the terrace or in your driveway, not in the road, and not on top of snowbanks. You may need to shovel out an area for your carts. Please keep carts 4 feet away from each other and any other obstructions to prevent them from being tipped over during service, or not serviced at all.
         Timing: Collection times may be different, either earlier or later than usual. Please make sure your carts are out by your community’s designated time (7 a.m. for Town of Middleton residents).
         Notifications: Download the Pellitteri Waste Systems mobile app at www.pellitteri.com/recycleright for updates on weather delays or cancellations or sign up for email alerts at www.pellitteri.com. Future weather updates can also be found at www.pellitteri.com/weather.
 

 
BRUSH CHIPPING REMINDERS

The Town Crew makes a single "clean sweep" pass of the entire Town of Middleton community.  Once a neighborhood has been collected, the crew will not return to that area until the next scheduled collection.

Collections will be conducted in the most expedient method possible, but inclement weather and mechanical problems may create delays. Depending on weather and workload, it may take up to a week to complete the Town chipping rotation.

Safety of the crew is always a top concern.  Click HERE for more information regarding brush chipping.
