The purpose of the Recycling Center is to have a convenient location for Town of Exeter residents to dispose of household waste and recyclable materials. Due to limited space and the need for all residents to utilize the Recycling Center, please limit the size of your loads each week. This area is for exclusive use of Exeter residents who exclusively reside in the Town, any items from outside of the township are not allowed. Please do not be offended if we ask for your sticker or identification. You must tarp or cover your loads before leaving your residence; this will help prevent garbage from ending up on the roads of Exeter.

Used Oil Filters and Absorbents
Used Oil Filters and Absorbents Landfill Ban
2009 Wisconsin Act 86 [PDF exit DNR] bans the landfilling of used oil filters and absorbents as of January 1, 2011.
The ban applies to everyone in the state, including individuals, farmers, businesses, commercial or industrial facilities, and other organizations. The law does not exempt any groups or classes of individuals.
The ban covers two types of materials: used oil filters and used oil absorbent materials.
Used Oil Filters

The ban specifically covers filters from motor vehicles. These include oil filters from:
- ATVs and UTVs
Oil filters from other sources, like hydraulic systems and other machinery are not covered under this ban, but we encourage them to be recycled as well.
Used Oil Absorbent Materials

The oil absorbent ban includes materials used to absorb petroleum-derived or synthetic oil that has been used or spilled.
All types of materials used to absorb or contain waste oil are covered under the ban, including:
- granular kitty litter-type absorbents
- oil-dry cloths
- paper toweling
- absorbent pillows, pads and socks
An exception is made in the ban to allow the disposal of up to one gallon of oil absorbent materials from a non-routine spill. A gallon of material is the amount that would fit inside a dry gallon container.
Non-routine spills may include oil that is released when a seal is broken, or when oil is accidentally spilled. Routine spills may include oil that leaks continually while a machine is operating, or oil that leaks each time a frequently repeated operation occurs (such as dismantling a car).
What Should I Do With My Used Oil Filters and Absorbents
Recycling is the preferred method of handling used oil filters and absorbents. Wisconsinites throw away an estimated 187,000 gallons of oil in used oil filters and 1.6 million gallons of oil in oil absorbents. Oil is a valuable, reusable material. Recycling used filters and absorbents preserves oil for reuse.
