Promoting Sustainability in Waukesha County
One Community at a Time
The Waukesha County Green Team promotes environmental and economic sustainability in Waukesha County communities through education, communication, and local action. We are guided by The Natural Step Framework.
We sponsor educational forums, networking events, and projects to conserve Waukesha County resources and to build a sustainable future – one community at a time.
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.

Working together, we can create a sustainable future.
