Portage County Transfer Facility Information

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

  • Confidential Shredding

  • 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.

The Portage County Waste Transfer Facility is located at 650 Moore Road in the Village of Plover just east of I-39 and north of County Hwy B next to the County's Material Recovery Facility.

All loads must be COVERED or completely enclosed within your vehicle during delivery. Uncovered loads may be refused or subject to a $10.00 surcharge.

Please see our Fees page for information on our rates.
