Hazardous Waste and Prohibited Materials

How to Dispose of Hazardous Waste and Prohibited Materials

Prohibited Materials

The items below are banned from the landfill because they are considered household hazardous waste and are harmful to the environment, they should be recycled, and/or they require special disposal methods. Do not place any of these items in your trash or recycling cart but follow the alternative disposal methods listed below. This is not an all-inclusive list. We recommend calling the location before taking materials there to be sure they can still accept your items; also to confirm operating days and hours.

Note: Dane County Clean Sweep accepts items from Dane, Columbia and Sauk County residents for a fee. They may accept items from residents of other counties for a higher fee; contact them for information. Select this link to see if your county has a Clean Sweep location or event. 

 (Yard Waste) 

Do not place these in your trash or recycling carts or dumpster. Visit the Wisconsin DNR Household Sharps page for collection stations.

Tires cannot be placed in trash or recycling carts or dumpsters. Pellitteri offers pick-up using our bulky item service for residents who have our curbside service. Please contact our office (608-257-4285) for pricing information. If you are not in one of the municipalities we service for curbside carts, you can take tires to the Dane County Landfill. Tires must be off the rims for curbside pickup and for drop off at the Dane County Landfill.

Most tire dealers will dispose of your old tires for a fee, too. Learn more about vehicle tire disposal from the Wisconsin DNR.
