DescriptionWaukesha County Recycling is the “responsible unit” for recycling and waste reduction in Waukesha County per state law for 25 of 37 municipalities in our county. They own a materials recycling facility for residential recycling, and administer numerous educational programs related to recycling, waste reduction, hazardous waste, re-use, etc. They have an education room at their facility, but they also conduct presentations at schools, businesses, clubs, etc. They have a county Green Schools program that serves as a financial support system for schools that can also be used to help complete our state Green & Healthy Schools program. They assist residents, schools, businesses, and other organizations with recycling, offer school and business waste assessments, and a variety of other resources such as compost education, green building, sustainability, etc.

Waukesha County Recycling is actively involved in a waste reduction coalition that is transitioning from regional to statewide: The Wisconsin Be SMART (Save Money And Reduce Trash) Coalition. They provide workgroups for Special Wastes, Away-From-Home Recycling, Green Pages(an annual special Earth Day section of the local Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper), and a scholarship program.
