Waste and Recycling

Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Program

In order to protect the health and safety of Kenosha County residents, employees and waste service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event has been rescheduled from Saturday, May 2nd to Saturday, July 25th. 

The July 25th event will be held at the Kenosha County Center and open to the public from 8AM to 1PM. In addition to hazardous waste, e-waste and appliances, batteries will be collected this year.

The Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Program is a FREE program and a great opportunity for Kenosha residents to dispose of their household hazardous waste in an environmentally friendly way.  Anyone who lives in Kenosha County – the city, towns and villages – can dispose of their household hazardous waste, e-waste and refrigerant waste by bringing their waste items at this annual event.

Check with your local municipal waste collection services to determine what can be recycled in curbside bins, as well as options for yard waste and bulk item pick-up. For waste items not accepted in your community, look to the Wisconsin Recycling Markets Directory for disposal options throughout the state.

Recycling Resource:  

The Wisconsin Recycling Markets Directory (WRMD) provides information about outlets for recycling various materials in Wisconsin. Users can search the list of recyclers for various materials, view information about the recyclers and suggest additional recyclers to include in the listing.

The recyclers in this directory may work with large volumes of material. It is important to contact these companies to discuss your recycling options and to make arrangements for drop-off or pick up.

Year-Round Local Collection Services:

Local waste and recycling collection varies by community and is susceptible to change. For the most up-to-date information regarding what can be recycled, where and when, contact your local municipality directly.
