Dane County is a wonderful place to call home for so many reasons. One of the biggest reasons is because of the wealth of natural resources our community has. From rivers and lakes to parks and forests, our county offers endless opportunities for outdoor enjoyment. However, along with these incredible natural resources comes the responsibility to protect them. The Department of Waste & Renewables is committed to environmental protection, taking action on climate change, and incorporating sustainability in all aspects of our operations.
