Winona County Recycling
COVID-19 Update: Recycling is still being picked up, per your normal schedule.

Kudos to Winona County residents! You've made our curbside recycling program tops in the state in participation, and we thank you. Over the years we've worked hard to make the program easy for you, and the changes we're making in 2017 should build on that. The only place left for us to improve is in the quality of our recycling stream. Right now the contamination rate of our recycling stream is close to 8%. We think we can cut that in half to 4%, and make our program the "cleanest" recycling stream in the state, too. Reducing contamination now will reduce our long-term costs, so please review this "acceptable recyclables" list carefully. Then, you can help your family and friends get it too, and we all win!
