Tuesday & Saturday:  7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The following items are recyclable:

  • Glass – clear, brown, green, and blue
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Plastics – all food, beverage and household bottles accepted
  • Motor Oil

We have dumpsters for larger items and have a “scrap iron” area to get rid of unwanted metal items. We also accept the following items for a small fee:

$10 fee for disposal of:  sofa, love seat, mattress, box spring, chair, porcelain toilets & sinks, washers, dryers, stoves, etc.

$100 fee for disposal of:  oversized items such as hot tubs, cabinets, etc.

Fee for disposal of tires, televisions, computers, microwaves, electronics, bulbs, Freon units, batteries, oil, oil filters, antifreeze, & absorbents are mandated by Oconto County.  See County Fee Schedule for disposal of these items.

We will accept a small amount of building material or items that will not practically fit into an “approved” garbage bag. The general rule is: If the items in question would be less than or equal to filling a 55 gallon drum per day, we will accept it. We ask that you get a dumpster from a local refuse company if you have more than the amount we will accept. The recycling attendant will help you determine what we will accept. The recycling attendant has the right to reject certain items or the amount of such items.

For your convenience, we have a compost pile located adjacent to the recycling center. We will accept grass, leaves and wood chips. We will not accept brush, stumps or trees at this time. Please leave these items at your curbside for chipping every other Monday opposite curbside recycling. We start chipping in the Spring, we do not chip after the first snowfall.

If you have questions, please contact the business office for more info.
