Brown County Recycling Transfer Station to Temporarily Close

The Brown County Recycling Transfer Station, located at 2561 South Broadway Street in Green Bay, will be closed starting on September 11 so that its concrete floor can be replaced. The transfer station will re-open on September 18.

What does that mean for you?
This temporary closure will NOT impact Harter's bi-weekly pick-up of residents' co-mingled recyclables. The closure will only affect those taking recyclable material directly to the Brown County Transfer Station. If you have recyclables that you would normally take directly to the transfer station, you have the following three options:

  1. Hold the recyclables for the week.
  2. Directly deliver the recyclables toe the Tri-County Recycling Facility (1410 Holland Road, Appleton).
  3. Use Advanced Disposal Services (ADS), located at 1799 South Broadway Street in De Pere).
If you plan to use ADS, please note:
  • ADS transfer station will be open 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
  • Credit will be received for delivered recyclables on the customer's account from Brown County.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is REQUIRED. This includes: safety vests, safety glasses, and a hard hat.
  • ADS loader & pedestrians have the right of way.
  • Customers must make visual contact and communicate with front end loader operator prior to backing into building.
  • Travel at LOW speed on site.
  • DO NOT park on HWY 57 waiting to enter ADS property. Instead, pull around the block and wait for an opening.
  • There is 2-way traffic on the ADS scale. Outgoing semis have the right of way.
