Attention Contractors: Effective May 13, 2020
Starting May 13, 2020, the City of New Berlin has suspended sales of Recycling Center Contractor Load Permits. All previously issued permits will be honored. The following requirements remain:
All contractors must be a New Berlin business. All yard waste must be from New Berlin properties. They will be required to sign a form and show proof that their business is located in New Berlin and that the yard waste they are dumping is from New Berlin properties only. Contractors are required to see the attendant prior to unloading to have their cards punched for each load.
Please keep in mind: recycling is an evolving industry, and therefore this information is subject to change.
