About Our Landfill

The La Crosse County facility is a 350 acre complex at 3200 Berlin Drive, La Crosse, Wisconsin. Here we are much more than garbage being compacted and buried. We strive to find new ways and partnerships to recycle, repurpose, and reuse materials to keep them out of the waste stream. We capture methane from the active areas to fuel a local hospital complex, chip clean wood waste as an energy source for a local power plant, collect asphalt shingles to be ground and delivered to a local asphalt manufacturer for highway construction, collect concrete and used blacktop to be ground up and used for road base, and collect over 30,000 pounds of partially used paints, household cleaners, auto care cleaners and lubricants, pesticides and more from citizens, to be beneficially reused again by someone else in the community. The La Crosse County facility is available for anyone from anywhere to use—the Solid Waste Department is not on the tax levy, and it is a pay-as-you-go system. Read more...
