Probably not unless your policy specifically covers sewers, sumps and drains. It is a good idea to contact your insurance company if you do not know if you have this coverage.
All drains and fixtures in a dwelling are supposed to be hooked to a vent pipe that extends up through the roof to expel back pressure in your plumbing system. Drains are protected from gas escaping into a dwelling by a "gooseneck" or water trap in the drain. This is true for floor drains, sinks, and toilets. If this water in the trap evaporates because of extended non-use, the gas can escape into the dwelling. A simple solution is to add water to that drain and any drain which is not used that often. If this does not solve the problem, it would be a good idea to have your venting system inspected.
No. Flushing any type of wipes, even if labeled as "flushable", may cause the pipes to clog and raw sewage to back up into your home or business. Toilet paper is the only paper product that should be flushed.
The sewer utility crews use a high-pressure jet of water to clean the sanitary sewers in the street. The sewer system in your home or business is vented through a pipe that runs up through your walls and out your roof. This venting system is designed to relieve pressure in the sewer system so gases in the piping come out through the pipe in your roof, and not through your toilet or drains. If this is what is occurring, then your venting system may be plugged. sometimes this is caused by birds or squirrels building a nest in the vent pipe on your roof. It would be a good idea to have your plumbing system inspected.

No, the City does not pick up trash and recycling curbside. There are several haulers who pickup trash and recycling curbside in the City of Menomonie. Residents can choose which hauler they would like to use. The City pays for the curbside recycling service but residents are responsible for the curbside trash fee. Alternatively, the City Solid Waste Site allows City residents to drop off trash and recycling.
The City Community Services department picks up yard waste and brush curbside for selected dates in the spring and fall. These are typically 3 or 4 Mondays in the spring and 3 or 4 Mondays in the fall. The City Solid Waste Site accepts yard waste and brush for free year-round during their regular open hours.
Latex paint can be safely thrown away in the regular household trash once it is dry. Latex paint can be dried up by opening the container and allowing to air dry or mix in materials (kitty litter, sawdust, shredded paper, etc) to accelerate the hardening. Once it is hard, throw the lid and the paint can in the trash.
The City Solid Waste Site does not accept electronics. Electronics can be recycled at First Choice Recycling in Eau Claire.
The Water Department flushes water mains to remove sediments from the mains. This helps maintain the pipes and keep them clean. It is reccomended that residents run cold water, preferably through a garden hose, for a few minutes after flushing has occurred to prevent any loose sediment from entering your internal plumbing.
