Pellitteri wants to keep costs down for collecting recyclable materials, but they need our help. Beginning April 2019, improperly placed recyclables will be tagged and not collected. Please see Pellitteri's memo, and review additional information on the City's and Pellitteri's web sites for a list of recyclables materials and proper cart placement.
Middleton Recycling Center
The Middleton Recycling Center is open year-round Saturday mornings (excluding major holidays) from 8 am to noon, and Wednesday evenings 5:30pm to 7:00pm June through September. The Middleton Recycling Center is located at 4330 Parmenter Street (at the Municipal Operations Center) and is for use by City of Middleton residents only.
The City of Middleton is requesting that residents become familiar with the items that are not accepted at the recycling center by visiting the recycling center web page or by reviewing the City's Trash and Recycling Guide linked below. There has been a significant increase in the amount of non-accepted items found at the recycling center including painted and engineered wood, glass objects, packing peanuts, paper, foam sheets, bubble wrap, salt bags, cooking oil, and many other non-accepted items.
Disposing of non-accepted items at the recycling center causes contamination of recycled materials, increases recycling costs, and can render recycled materials as waste due to the difficulty of sorting out non-accepted items.
The City needs your help to ensure that our recycled loads of clean wood, block Styrofoam, corrugated cardboard, and scrap metals are not contaminated with other non-accepted items. Thank you!
Please read the information below regarding limited services offerings due to COVID-19. This page will be updated as offerings at the Center change.
