[GreenYes] Mandatory recycling by generators
Hi Brenda ~

Wisconsin has had mandatory recycling for all generators since 1991. The
statute is on the Internet at
http://www.legis.state.wi.us/statutes/01Stat0287.pdf, while the regulations
are at http://www.legis.state.wi.us/rsb/code/nr/nr500.html, especially NR
544, but including NR 538 to NR 590. 

A state report surveying citizens on recycling is at
http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/es/science/pubs/tr/PUB_SS_973_2002.PDF. Other
reports are also available on the results of recycling if you would like to
have them as well.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

John Reindl, Recycling Manager
Dane County, WI
