The Outagamie County Board opposes any increase in tipping fees. The recycling fund is a segregated fund and money should not be transferred out of this fund for other purposes, as has happened.

We support increasing the tipping fee for waste in Wisconsin’s landfills as it would protect our environment, by discouraging excessive amounts of potentially less regulated out of state waste and provide more income for the recycling program.
