Waukesha County Distributes Nearly $1.5 Million to Municipalities for Recycling
Twenty five municipalities will receive checks this spring totaling nearly $1.5 million as partners in the Waukesha County Recycling Program and for delivering their recyclables to the County Materials Recycling Facility (MRF).  The $1.5 million in dividend payments to municipalities is intended to provide tax relief by helping to offset their residential recycling collection costs.  The dividends vary for each participating municipality based on the individual program costs, tons of recyclables and recycling rate.
