We have a drop-off site for refuse, recycling and green waste collection at no additional charge for the Town of Brooklyn residents ONLY.

NOTE: Businesses are required by law to have their own dumpsters and are not allowed to use the Town Recycling/Sanitation/Green Waste Center (R/S/W).

The R/S/W Center is located at N6285 Berlin Road. Hours are listed above.
