Boyceville Solid Waste & Recycling
Wednesday: 1:00pm – 6:45pm
Saturday: 8:00am – 12:45pm
The following items are banned from landfills and incinerators statewide and should be reused, recycled, or composted.
Why ban items from the landfill and incinerator?
The items on this list are made of materials that can be reused in new products. Some also have toxic components that we do not want in our groundwater, air or soil. Recycling and composting allow landfills to last longer, provide markets with valuable reusable materials, create jobs, and prevent pollution.
Why not ban more materials?
Corrugated cardboard is banned while waxed cardboard is not. Some things with plugs, like computers, are banned, while others, like toasters, are not. Why? Current bans cover some of the most easily reusable or most toxic materials on the market today. Eventually more items may be added to this list as new recycling markets develop or the types of materials we throw away change.
