Reminder: New Recycling Materials Accepted

The Tri-County (Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties) Single Stream Recycling Facility has now expanded its processing capabilities to add new plastic materials. Since December 1, 2014, the following new items can 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
These items can be placed in the provided Harter’s recycling carts. Bags should not be used because they can severely damage the sorting equipment. Please remember to rinse 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
Recycle More, Landfill Less, Happy Recycling!!  For further information on recycling, visit the Brown County recycling website.
