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.
In addition to household and commercial trash and recycling the department offers a variety of other programs for residents including electronic, appliance, and tire recycling, waste oil and anti-freeze recycling, and household hazardous waste disposal services.
