Services and Functions
The Solid Waste Department in Portage County has two important solid waste facilities. The Material Recovery Facility (MRF), in Plover, processes recyclable materials, producing a salable product that is sold to brokers or end-users. The Transfer Facility, meanwhile, now operates after the closure of the Sanitary Landfill in Custer. Residents, haulers and businesses can bring in their solid waste to the facility, from which it is then taken to an area landfill.

The department administers a variety of solid waste programs to meet the needs of Portage County residents, including acceptance of curb-side garbage/recycling, drop-off garbage/recycling services, electronics recycling, appliance & tire recycling, waste oil & anti-freeze recycling, and household hazardous materials disposal services.

Please feel free to visit any of our facilities. Call 345-5970 with questions or to set up a formal tour.
