The Dane County Landfill provides recycling services for select materials that are dropped off at the site. Current recycling programs include:  

  • Tire recycling (rims must be off).
  • Clean shingles (only asphalt shingles, nails, & tar paper).
  • Bicycle Exchange Program. Dropping off a bike entails a small fee, but picking one up is free. 
  • Electronics recycling (drop off at Clean Sweep).

Residential recycling and curbside pickup services are provided to you by your local municipality. However, no matter what material you have to get rid of, we want to help you find the right place for it.
