MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County Board members broke ground Thursday on a new recycling center.
The $4 million facility at the county landfill will recycle construction materials and allow Clean Sweep to run year-round. The program allows homeowners to dispose of hazardous items.
Dane County Executive Joe Parisi said the recycling center will be a "green" facility and add years to the landfill's capacity.
"We're going to be taking our waste heat from our electric generator at the landfill and using that to heat the building, so it's environmentally friendly and taxpayer friendly on a number of different levels," Parisi said.
The recycling center is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
