Garbage and Recycling

    The automated garbage and recycling program helps increase efficiency. By automating collection, current personnel can keep pace with the increased number of residential pickups in the Village.

    Please Recycle! It Pays!

    The Village of Pleasant Prairie uses single stream recycling. Single stream recycling is a process where all recycling materials are combined together and then later sorted at a remote transfer site. This allows you to combine paper, cardboard and other recycling materials into one recycling cart. Since recycled material does not have a tipping fee, as garbage does, the Village saves this fee, plus environmental fees and taxes. These savings area passed on to you. The more you recycle, the more everyone saves.

    The more recycling materials that are sorted out of the garbage stream, the lower the costs for garbage collection. 

    The more we recycle, the less negative impact we have on our environment. Both locally and worldwide!
