Recycling Locations in Dane County
Public Recycling Drop-off Centers
In contrast to recycling firms that may pay for material and, in some cases, provide collection services, dropoff
centers do not pay for material and all material must be delivered to the facility.
The municipal dropoff centers are generally open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while the dropoff centers at
businesses are generally open only during regular business hours. Where a telephone number is provided, it is best
to call ahead to make sure that the facility is still accepting the materials listed and to find out the hours
and any special conditions. Finally, note that while the information in this fact sheet was obtained from the
locations listed, existing dropoff centers may close and new centers may open. Changes can be reported to the
Dane County Department of Public Works at 267-8815.
In addition to the dropoff centers listed here, some local communities also operate dropoff centers for yard
waste, paper or containers.
