Tri-County Recycling Facility

The Tri-County Recycling Facility, owned and operated by the Tri-County Regional Partnership of Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties accepts material from most Northeast Wisconsin and Upper Michigan communities.  Over 100,000 tons of recyclables are processed each year utilizing staff from a two-shift operation.  Recyclables that are collected curbside and from drop-off centers are brought to the facility located in Appleton, Wisconsin.  Please view the video below for a virtual tour of the Tri-County Recycling system.  Additional program information is available in Tri-County Recycling's Northeast Wisconsin Recycle Guide.
