Recycling and Sustainability     
Recycling is an important practice here at the Kress Inn. We have provided the following items to make recycling during your stay more convenient. Public recycling bins are located on each floor for recycling of cans, plastic or paper. Green bins are also placed in each guest room. To further our commitment to sustainability the hotel has partnered with Clean the World, an organization that sanitizes and recycles the used soaps and shampoos left in guest rooms. These amenities are then distributed to children and families in need throughout the world. The hotel is also honored to carry the Travel Green Wisconsin certification. In the spirit of Wisconsin's deep heritage of environmental stewardship, the Department of Tourism initiated Travel Green Wisconsin to promote smart, environmentally friendly business practices
