Wisconsin Uses Ordinances and Permits to Promote Recycling in Public Places
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.
