The Town of Wolf River has recycling the third Wednesday of each month.
Winnebago County uses a single stream facility. No need to separate your recyclables, just place them together in a large receptacle and put them out next to your trash on the garbage day.
****Plastic bags will not be accepted after January 1, 2010****
Winnebago County, with Brown and Outagamie Counties, has built a new single stream recycling processing facility that will go on-line July 1, 2009. "What is single stream recycling?" you may ask. Single stream recycling allows all recyclables (including paper, cardboard, cans and bottles) to be mixed together for collection. This tends to encourage increased recycling with the added convenience of no separation requirements and tends to make collection easier and more efficient as all recyclables can be mixed in a single compartment in the truck (versus two compartments, where one may fill faster than the other, leaving the truck unable to maximize its load). In addition, the Winnebago County Solid Waste Management Board voted to discontinue the acceptance of plastic bags for recycling as of January 1, 2010. Presently, some communities, including Wolf River, place cans and bottles in plastic bags (either blue or clear) curbside for collection. The plastic bags are costly to process and cannot be recycled. Additionally, with single stream recycling, plastic bags can wrap around screens used to process the recyclables, causing them to work inefficiently or facility downtime to clear the screens. As a result, Winnebago County will no longer accept plastic bags (whether blue, clear or any other color) with recyclables as of January 1, 2010.
There are several alternatives to plastic bags including wheeled carts, uniform bins and residentially-provided containers. The Town of Wolf River has decided to utilize residentially-provided containers. This means each household can choose a collection container that best meets their needs, within certain specifications. Containers should be between 15-33 gallons in size, have exterior handles and not weigh more than 50 pounds when full. Look around your home for an old storage bin or trash can that you may no longer use and give it new life as your recycling container! Or you may go to any hardware or discount store and find a suitable container to fit the size of your household and recyclable generation. During the next few months, we encourage you to use up any remaining ‘blue bags.’ Once you’ve depleted your supply, begin using a reusable container for your recyclables. Again, plastic bags will not be accepted after Jan. 1st.
