Recycling Pays

August 17, 2022

With the strong market for recyclables, the Town of Algoma received an additional $17,158 from the sale of recyclables (surplus commodity revenue) this past year. That money will be used to offset the cost of garbage and recycling collection services that is charged to Town residents. It is estimated that 20% of recyclable materials end up in the landfill with most of it being cardboard. We encourage Town residents to continue to improve their recycling habits because Recycling Pays!! For more information on recycling, please visit the Winnebago County Solid Waste website at
