Public Works Solid Waste Division
What We Do
The Solid Waste Division is responsible for the siting, construction, operation, maintenance, closure, and post-closure
care of Dane County's landfills, compost sites, and landfill gas-to-energy systems. This Division also coordinates
and manages the County's recycling and Clean Sweep programs and activities.
Landfill gas-to-energy systems reduce the County's budget by $1.2 million annually. And the Division's integrated approach
to landfilling, composting, recycling, and hazardous waste disposal ensures an affordable long-term solid waste disposal
system for Dane County residents and future generations.
