How it Works
- Sign up by completing and emailing the registration form (see webpage) or by calling (920) 492-4950 to become a part of the Food Waste & Organics Drop-Off program.
- Purchase BPI-certified compostable bags through the Brown County Food Waste & Organics website or at a local grocery or hardware store. Normal plastic bags contaminate the compost and are not allowed.
- Start collecting food scraps, leftovers, non-recyclable papers and much more at home and bring them to one of the Drop-off Sites. Search for "Kitchen Compost Bins" online to see the range of options for collecting material in your home.
- Organic materials are hauled to an anaerobic digester which accelerates the composting process as well as capturing the methane gas from the decomposition process.
