Garbage and Recycling Overview
The Western Lake Superior Sanitary District regulates the management of all solid waste generated within the District boundaries and waste delivered to the WLSSD transfer station from outside the District through the WLSSD Solid Waste Ordinance.
There are many services available within the WLSSD that allow for the proper management of all business and residential waste. Local garbage haulers pick up garbage from area residents and businesses, and deliver it to the WLSSD transfer station, where the material is inspected and loaded into larger trucks for transport to the City of Superior, WI landfill. Garbage haulers collect recyclable materials from residents and businesses in cities and towns within the district. Rural residents can take advantage of the many recycling sheds and sites located throughout the district for their recycling needs.
Although the District boundaries include a portion of northern Carlton County, solid waste is managed in that area by the county. Carlton County residents and businesses should refer to Carlton County for more information on garbage and recycling.
