Business Recycling 

Waste Reduction and Recycling: It’s not only good business – it’s the law!

The state Waste Reduction and Recycling Law along with local ordinances require all businesses and their building owner to:

  • Provide separate containers for the materials banned from landfills and incinerators
  • Regularly educate the occupants and users about the recycling program at their facility.
  • Arrange for the collection and delivery of the recyclables to a recycling facility.

The law also places a high priority on reducing waste and reusing items even before recycling.

How to get started?

Businesses are not able to use the recycling sites in Rusk County as they are only for residential use. Businesses must contract with a waste hauler to pick-up their recycling. With Single-Stream Recycling all of the recycling can be put into one recycling dumpster. There is no longer a need to get two separate dumpsters. Customers need to have a place where they can recycle at your business. There are many different recycling bins available.

Please view the Business Recycling PowerPoint to learn about landfill bans, acceptable items, local recycling opportunities, managing universal waste and much more.
