Recycling and proper disposal is important to our community and our planet. Given our current challenges with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to modify our services.
Temporarily suspended programs include:
Closed on Saturdays
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Recycling of: batteries, bulbs, ballasts, tires, electronics, appliances with or without Freon, oil, oil filters, antifreeze, and bulky plastics
Please hold on to these items for the time being. We'll resume normal services once we feel the health and safety of our workers are no longer at risk.
Services and Functions
The Solid Waste Department oversees and administers programs at the Material Recovery Facility (Recycling Center) and the Transfer Facility in Plover. County residents, contracted haulers, and businesses can bring in both trash and recyclable material for proper disposal.

If you find you have a little extra free time on your hands, I encourage you to watch the documentary Plastic Wars. It highlights why we think many plastic items are recyclable even through they are not. It just might shock you. Enjoy!
One time use disinfectant wipes are made with synthetic fibers that prevent them from being recyclable, compostable, or flushable. Throw them in the garbage. The empty plastic container can go in the recycling. #RecycleRightWI
No loose caps in the cart! #RecycleRightWI
As a reminder we are no longer accepting any of these special wastes to help limit our workers to COVID-19. We'll let you know when we can accept them again, hold onto them fro the time being. We appreciate your understanding.
Residue (or items that cannot be recycled) still go to the landfill, which has a lot of extra transportation and is very expensive. #RecycleRightWI
Give your clothes a second chance! Give them to a friend, those in need, or donate. Great news! Worn, tattered, and other clothing that cannot be resold can still be donated to be recycled! Check with your local donation center for details #RecycleRightWI
