Certain items that pose a threat to the environment cannot be placed with your normal garbage and require special disposal. Some examples include poisonous items (pesticides, insecticides, cleaning products, etc), electronics and small appliances, flammable material (oil based paint, stain and varnish, gasoline, etc.) and many others. There is a hazardous waste facility located in Green Bay that residents may bring items to. There may be a fee to help cover the cost of proper disposal.
For more information on what is considered hazardous waste and how to properly dispose of it you may contact their office at: 920-492-4950 or visit the Brown County Hazardous Waste Facility website.
