Contractor Materials


A contractor is anyone who is paid for the job. Contractor materials must be taken to Dane County Landfill (Hwy 12/18), 267-1502.

To Donate Your Unneeded or Used Building Material: Please check with Habitat for Humanity prior to making a donation. This is also an excellent place to find bargain materials for your home improvement projects.

Recycling Alternatives: Mixed Loads of Construction Material can be recycled at three facilities in the Madison area. All firms will sort the material and recycle 60% to 80% of the material. And, even better news, they will charge less than the landfill to take your material.

The mixed load recyclers are:

  • Royal Container, 4197 Reardon Rd., DeForest, 221-1919,
  • Second Season Recycling, 2159 Range Trail Rd., Verona, 848-4400
  • Symmetry Recycling 4907 Dutch Mill Rd., Madison, 239-0898.

Concrete can be recycled by:

  • Wingra Stone (271-5555)
  • Mandt Sandfill (835-5858)
  • Northwestern Stone (836-1701)

Northwestern Stone and Mandt Sandfill will also take bricks.

Asphalt can be recycled by:

  • DRS (836-6667)
