About Our System

Welcome to the La Crosse County Solid Waste Facility. La Crosse County is the hub of a regional solid waste management system that serves local residents, businesses and industry 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.

The majority of these services are managed here at the La Crosse County Solid Waste Facility. 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.

Additional information on this regional approach is available on our Educational Videos webpage
