GLRPPR Sector Resource: Wisconsin Uses Ordinances and Permits to Promote Recycling in Public Places

Title:
Wisconsin Uses Ordinances and Permits to Promote Recycling in Public Places

Abstract:
Wisconsin's Solid Waste Reduction, Recovery, and Recycling Law requires everyone in the state to recycle, whether at home, at work, or at away-from-home settings like fairs, festivals, sports events, conferences, and meetings. Every Wisconsin community has a recycling ordinance with language similar to that of the state law. The State of Wisconsin, and two of its communities in particular -- the City of Madison and Waukesha County -- are using regulations and ordinances in conjunction with public outreach and education as tools to enhance their public place recycling programs.
