Recycling Bin In A Field


The Brown County Port & Resource Recovery Department is an Enterprise Fund of Brown County. The Resource Recovery area of the Department offers services to municipal, commercial, industrial and residential interests. The Department has been in business for more than 40 years providing cost-effective, efficient and environmentally responsible disposal for Brown County residential and commercial waste and recycling. The department's resource recovery operations include the Brown County South Landfill, a Solid Waste Transfer Station, a Single Stream Recycling Transfer Station, a regional Hazardous Material Recovery Facility,  maintenance of two closed landfills, and coordination of household sharps and pharmaceutical collection and disposal programs. The Resource Recovery Department also provides programs, when markets are available, for recycling shingles, construction & demolition material, wood waste, tires, Freon-containing appliances and electronics (please see What Do I Do With, for information on where to recycle each of these items). These programs have been successful due to commitments to the solid waste management system through solid waste and recycling agreements with local communities and businesses.


"The Port & Resource Recovery Department will meet the solid waste management needs of local communities, residents, businesses and industry through methods that are environmentally sound, technically feasible and economical. These methods incorporate waste reduction, material reuse, recycling, composting, hazardous material treatment and disposal, solid waste disposal and "waste-to-energy."


The Strategic Solid Waste Management Plan was adopted by Brown County for the Port &  Resource Recovery Department in July 2017. An operating plan is developed annually to review the prior year's activities and set goals for the upcoming year as the Department strives to meet the 5-year goals of the strategic plan.
