Solid Waste

Welcome to the La Crosse County Solid Waste Department!

La Crosse County is the hub of a regional solid waste management system that serves residents, businesses and industries in this County, and in several surrounding counties in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. Our system provides reuse, resource recovery, recycling and disposal services, in addition to programs designed to reduce the toxicity of various waste streams. Most of these services are managed at the La Crosse County Solid Waste Facility (Landfill) and Household Hazardous Materials Facility (HHM). Resource recovery activities are conducted at the Xcel Energy waste-to-energy facility on French Island. The services offered by our system are consistent with the State of Wisconsin's preferred waste management hierarchy.  As a publicly owned, privately-operated system, we are focused on managing waste locally. This full-service approach is vital to our environmental and economic sustainability.

Thank you for visiting us,
Jadd Stilwell
Director – La Crosse County Solid Waste Department
