Collection Site Notice
It would be appreciated when you bring in a larger item (TV stand, dresser etc...) if you would knock it down as flat as possible to take up less space in the dumpsters.  This would also be helpful when bringing in cardboard boxes.  The more we get in the dumpsters, the less it costs us in transport charges.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

As of December 1, 2015 ID Tags will now be needed when you visit the Collection Site.  If you have not received yours please contact the Town Hall Office at 920-876-3413. Lost, stolen or replacement tags are available for a $20 fee.

Payment of Dog Licenses may be made during normal business hours at the Town of Rhine Hall at W5250 CTH FF on Tuesday or Thursday from 11:30am to 4:30pm.  Dog license payments, including a self-addressed stamped envelope for mailing the license back to you, may also be deposited in the drop box outside of the Town Hall at any time.  For Dog License payments by mail, please use the following address & include a self-addressed stamped envelope so the dog tag may be mailed back to you:  Town of Rhine, PO Box 117, Elkhart Lake, WI  53020-0117.  Checks for Dog Licenses should be made out to the Town of Rhine and must be a separate check from your tax payment.
