  • Information

  • Businesses are required to recycle under the same landfill ban as households. Recyclables must be collected separately from trash. Recycling containers must be available in the building, and building owners must provide recycling carts or dumpsters outdoors for collection by a hauler.  For additional information on recycling requirements see Recycling Law & County Ordinances. 

    Join the growing list of county businesses reaping benefits from a FREE, non-regulatory waste evaluation by our Business Recycling Specialist! Whether it's an office, restaurant, manufacturer, or retail operation, trash disposal represents profit loss.  Find new ways to improve the bottom line!

    An on-site visit can be scheduled at your convenience to evaluate opportunities to reduce trash volume & costs, recycle more, and find solutions for disposing of unusual materials. Depending upon the size of your business, the visit can last from 10 minutes to 1 hour.  Recommendations are provided orally or written, as preferred, following the visit.

    Small businesses may be provided with indoor office recycling containers & posters to assist with collections in the workplace. Call 262-896-8317 for more information or to schedule a FREE evaluation! 

    The Waukesha County Business Recycling Specialist offers chamber presentations and can provide assistance directly through the chamber office as a benefit to members. Green Business Awards for recycling & reducing waste are also available.
