The purpose of the Brown County Port & Resource Recovery Department is to meet the solid waste disposal needs of local communities and businesses through methods that are environmentally sound and economical. These methods incorporate waste reduction, material reuse, recycling, composting, landfilling and waste-to-energy to the extent that they are technically feasible, economically appropriate and desired by the public.

Brown County currently operates a Single Stream Recycling Transfer Facility that transfers paper and commingled containers for county residents, business and municipalities to the Tri-County Material Recovery Facility. The Solid Waste Transfer Station on West Mason Street currently transfers waste to the Outagamie County Landfill as part of a three county waste disposal agreement. The county also maintains two closed sanitary engineered landfills. These landfills hold an estimated seven million cubic yards of waste produced by county residences, businesses and municipalities.
