RECYCLING PROGRAM - Reduce/Re-Use/Recycle
Polk County, WI is a dual stream source separating facility offering free drop-off of recyclable items at bins located throughout the county. Bins are owned and hauled to the recycling center by Polk County. In the 90's Wisconsin recycling laws banned land filling or incineration of recyclable materials now accepted at the recycling center. Why Recycle: Recycling uses 75-80% less energy when recycled material are made into new products. Recycling 1 pop can saves enough energy for 3 hours. Polk County diverts over 3,000,000 lbs each year (total) from ending up in the landfill. Recycling saves on landfill space, reduces air & water pollution, and saves electric.
