Shorewood residents recycle! In 2015, the Village collected over 1,240 tons of material for recycling.

Collection Schedule

Recyclable materials are collected from one, two and three family residential units biweekly at the curb by Waste Management, Inc. under contract with the Village of Shorewood. Materials are collected on the same day as the regular refuse collection (please see map). The Village is divided into two collection routes; to determine your collection day please first view the route map to determine your week and then click on the appropriate schedule (2017 Route 1 schedule or 2017 Route 2 schedule). Major holidays which fall on a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday will delay collection by one day. Please view the full list of recyclable items (Shorewood accepts plastics labeled 1-7).


Recycling materials must be placed in approved 95 gallon karts or 18 gallon bins for collection. These recycling containers are owned and maintained by each property owner and/or resident tenant. Additional and/or replacements are available for purchase at either the DPW office or Village Hall. The cost of a kart is $65 which includes delivery. Bins are no longer available for purchase.

Electronic Recycling

Beginning in 2010, the State of Wisconsin banned a wide array of consumer electronics from state landfills. Items including television sets, computers, VCR/DVD players, cell phones and other items must be recycled and cannot be collected with household refuse.

If it plugs into an outlet or runs on batteries, we can recycle it!

Shorewood residents may bring their electronic items to the Department of Public Works facility for recycling during Saturday dumping hours (please see above). Please note that a $25-50 fee applies to all television sets and monitors dependent upon size.  Recyclable items list.

For additional information on electronic recycling, please visit the WDNR's e-Cycle Wisconsin site.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees will be collected curbside for composting by Department of Public Works crews. Collection will not be day certain, however trees placed at the curb (no alleys please) will be picked up on a weekly basis as time and weather permit. Please remove all lights and decorations.
