Appliance and Electronic Collections


Appliance Collection

You will need to obtain a permit prior to using the Recycle Center. You can do that online or by visiting:

  • City Hall, 300 E. Main Street
  • Public Works, 201 S. Bristol Street
  • Sun Prairie Public Library, 1350 Linnerud Drive
  • Westside Community Services Building, Police Department, 2598 W. Main Street

As of January 2014, the City of Sun Prairie no longer performs curbside appliance collection. Non-Freon appliances will still be accepted at the Recycle Center during normal operational hours at no charge. Local appliance retailers may provide a collection service. Please contact individual companies for prices and to obtain these services.

The Recycle Center does not accept Freon appliances. This means we will not accept air conditioners, dehumidifiers, freezers and refrigerators.
