Services & 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.
Any large demolition projects (no asbestos), such as the removal of a house or barn, need to contact our office at least 48 hours in advance to make sure we can handle the increased volume of material. If no advance call, customers may be directed to go straight to the landfill if we cannot handle the volume. Call 715-343-6297.
All loads must be secured, using a cover or straps, or completely enclosed within your vehicle or trailer during delivery. Unsecured loads may be refused or subject to a $10 surcharge.
