Recycling Resources for Organizations
By implementing effective recycling programs, organizations can reduce their waste disposal costs, conserve natural resources, and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. We’ve created a list of resources for you and your organization to succeed with your program and communicate the importance of recycling.
If you are part of a group that could benefit from an in-person or virtual presentation, the St. Croix County Recycling Specialist is available to work with your business, school, community, or government organization. There is no charge for this service. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org | 715-531-1907
Wisconsin businesses and other workplaces can save landfilling costs, potentially earn money from the sale of materials, along with helping Wisconsin's economy and the environment by recycling. Below are links to Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) publications specific to businesses.
Schools accumulate tons of waste, from paper and computers to food and books. By learning how to handle these wastes as a resource, school officials have an opportunity to save on costs and positively influence the future of their school, district, and students, while preserving the environment.
