Town of Brooklyn

Recycling/Sanitation/Green Waste Center

We have a drop-off site for refuse, recycling and green waste collection at no additional charge for the Town of Brooklyn residents ONLY.

NOTE: Businesses are required by law to have their own dumpsters and are not allowed to use the Town Recycling/Sanitation/Green Waste Center (R/S/W).

The R/S/W Center is located at N6285 Berlin Road. Hours are listed above.

You need to have a Town of Brooklyn sticker for your vehicle. Please see one of the attendants at the Center if you do not have one or if you have changed vehicles.

Items collected at the Center that must be recycled include:

  1. Containers (aluminum, glass, plastic and steel).
  2. Paper/fiber products (newspapers, corrugated cardboard, magazines. Items do not have to be separated- they are co-mingled.

We do not collect the following items as they are not allowed in the landfill. These have to be recycled.

  1. Lead acid batteries (old ones should be returned to the place you purchased the new one).
  2. Major appliances that contain refrigerants and any electronics as they contain heavy metals. The place you purchase these items should take them or may charge a small fee to recycle them.
  3. Used tires.
  4. Used oil, oil filters, or any absorbents contaminated with oil.
  5. No items which contain asbestos.

If you are located in the Sanitary District and have garbage collection at your home and do not get pickup, please call (920) 295-4488. The Town of Brooklyn has nothing to do with this service.
