Recycling and composting

3/26/20: COVID-19 UPDATE

Thank you for your patience during the COVID-19 public health emergency. As state agencies continue operations, please understand that most of our staff are teleworking and may have limited access to files and delayed online connectivity.

With this in mind, we ask that our customers:

  • Use email whenever possible to communicate with staff.
  • Set up conference calls or Skype meetings in lieu of in-person meetings.
  • Request electronic public records online using our standard system, whenever possible.
    • State staff are not currently available to access physical files and no staff are available on-site to allow physical inspection of files by the public until the Governor's COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
  • Submit documents electronically, preferably via a download link (ftp servers, DNR system, etc.). Note: If that option is not available to you, DNR staff can receive emails up to 20 MB.

Staff will keep their voicemails and out-of-office messages up to date and will respond as they are able.

For the most up-to-date information, please visit our COVID-19 information webpage. For program-specific information, please search keyword "COVID19."

about what to recycle.

Wisconsin has a strong history of recycling and composting, and each of us has a role to play in continuing this success. We keep almost 2 million tons of material out of Wisconsin landfills and incinerators every year through recycling and composting. Recycling and composting are good for our economy, providing hundreds of community-based jobs and reusing valuable materials that would otherwise go to waste. Reducing our waste through recycling and composting is also good for our environment, reducing waste, cutting air pollution and saving energy.

Wisconsin's commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle is shown by its comprehensive recycling laws. The laws ban disposal and incineration of certain materials and delegate responsibility to local government responsible units for implementing municipal recycling programs to manage the banned materials. A separate electronics recycling law requires manufacturers of covered electronics to finance collection and recycling of electronics from households and schools.
