Newly Approved Items for Recycling

The Tri-County (Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties) Single Stream Recycling Facility has now expanded its processing capabilities to add new plastic materials. This expansion was made possible by the regional growth of the facility; from accepting approximately 52,000 tons of recyclables in in 2011 to over 82,000 tons in 2013. Bellevue residents provided 1,223 tons in 2011 and 1,185 tons in 2013 of recyclables to the Tri-County totals. With that growth in Tri-County totals, more efficient use of the original capital investment and greater economies of scale, investment in additional equipment for added materials was possible. The new equipment was installed just in time for the holiday recycling season.

New Items to be recycled:
  • Cartons (Milk, Juice, Soup, Wine, etc.)
  • Dairy Containers (yogurt, sour cream, margarine, cottage cheese, etc.)
  • Produce, bakery and deli containers (berry, donut, potatoes salad, etc.)
  • Lids from above containers
Please don’t forget the original recyclable items:
  • Newspapers, inserts, magazines, junk mail and catalogs
  • Cardboard and paperboard packaging
  • Office, writing, school paper and envelopes
  • Phonebooks, other soft and hard cover books
  • Paper bags, towel/toilet paper cores, paper egg cartons
  • Shredded paper in a paper bag, stapled shut
  • Glass food and beverage bottles and jars (all colors)
  • Aluminum, steel, tin, bi-metal bottles and cans (empty aerosol cans)
  • Plastic beverage and household bottles and jugs
These items can be placed in the provided Harter’s recycling carts loosely; bags can severely damage the sorting equipment and should not be used. Don’t forget to empty and rinse your containers.

The Tri-County Recycling Facility welcomes tours of the Facility and encourages groups ranging from children to senior citizens to come and learn more about the recycling program. Please visit the What Can I Recycle? page for more recycling information.

Recycle More, Landfill Less, Happy Recycling!!
