The SELF SERVE WASTE DEPOT will be unavailable for use  until Saturday, August 17th, 2019.  The asphalt is down - however, we need to let it set for a couple days.  You can bring your green bag to the Dodge County Transfer Station during regular business hours for free. The BLUE RECYCLING BINS are located one driveway north of the normal recycling center area until Monday,  August 19th, 2019. Watch for signs.  We apologize for the inconvenience and short notice. Thank you for your understanding. 

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please keep plastic bags and film out of your recycling bins! Clean plastic bags can be taken back to the retail stores for recycling.  Keep your recyclables loose in the cart or bin. If you collect your recycling in a bag please dump it out of the bag into the recycling bin and throw the bag in with your garbage. Thank you!

  * All sharps must be in a leak-proof, puncture-proof sealed container such as a laundry

  * Bring them to the Dodge County Recycling Center Building and put the container in the large sharps gondola.
They are picked up by Mayo Clinic and disposed of in their medical incinerator. PLEASE do not put loose sharps in the drop box recycling bins or in the garbage as this is a health hazard for everyone who handles your waste.
