Wisconsin County to Start Charging for Recycling

Article-Wisconsin County to Start Charging for Recycling

The high costs associated with recycling have been discussed in many times throughout this year. A county in Wisconsin is choosing to deal with the problem by charging its municipalities to process their recycling.

The GreenBayPressGazette.com has more:

A global downturn in the market for aluminum and other recycled materials means that Brown County next month will charge its municipalities to process their recycling.

It would be the first time in almost six years that the county would require communities to pay to support the program, which traditionally has made a small profit for communities by selling materials to companies that reuse them. And while the county will do monthly evaluations to see whether it needs to continue the charge, county officials have told their customers that the situation could continue.
