Solid Waste Disposal

Winnebago County Solid Waste Management, conveniently located off of I-41 at the Jackson St. exit in Oshkosh, is your go-to waste disposal resource for residential and commercial materials.  We offer a well-organized and clean Residential Drop-off Area that helps keep small vehicles and pedestrian traffic away from commercial truck activity.

While using our facility, please keep in mind:

  • All vehicles/loads must be scaled in prior to unloading.

  • All open loads must be covered while on any Winnebago County road (from your point of origin to any other location) as cited in Winnebago County General Code 15.51(3).

  • High-visibility safety vests/shirts are required for users of the Transfer Station, but are not necessary for use in the Customer Convenience Area. 

  • There is a minimum fee for all waste materials brought to the facility, except for single stream recycling and used cooking oil. Click here for our current rate sheet.

  • You should expect to unload all your materials on your own. We do not have staff available to assist with unloading vehicles.
