Congratulations City of Milwaukee residents! For the fifth straight year, our recycling totals continue to increase, thanks to your strong participation in DPW’s curbside/alley collection program. Household recycling weights have increased 20% over this five-year period.
Beginning in May 2014, the City of Milwaukee partnered with Waukesha County communities to renovate and repair a recycling facility capable of sorting, baling and shipping 60,000 tons of plastics, glass, paper and cans each year. The facility, located in the Menomonee Valley, is now a state-of-the-art single-stream Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).
Read about these highlights and more in the 2014 Annual Residential Recycling Report.
