Resource Recovery

Waste is a reality of life; unconsumed materials are generally discarded. Sending materials to landfill results in lost resources that retain economic and functional value and increases the need for raw materials. Landfill disposal will continue to play a role in waste management, but the current system must evolve from one that promotes disposal to one optimized for resource recovery and reuse.

The City of Milwaukee is committed to reducing landfill waste by utilizing and promoting resource recovery activities including waste prevention, recycling, reuse, and composting of organic waste.
