Sustainability Campus to be built on portion of Yahara Hills Golf Course

With less than 10 years of landfill space remaining at Dane County’s Rodefeld Landfill, the Dane County Department of Waste & Renewables wants to redesign how the community’s waste is managed, according to a county news release. The vision includes the development of a Sustainability Campus that will host waste processors, recycling businesses, and even research and startup companies. The campus is expected to bolster economic development in the area, create jobs, and foster reuse opportunities for materials that will help Dane County move toward a more circular economy.

The Sustainability Campus project, currently proposed for the eastern portion of the Yahara Hills Golf Course, includes a business park, an organics processing facility, a waste education center, and a landfill.
