The Village operates a licensed compost site located at 3891 Eaton Road. The site accepts your residential brush and yard waste and turns it into mulch and compost for your reuse. A portion of your garbage and recycling fees each month pay for the continuing operation. Because landscaping contractors have the ability to generate a lot more material and do not pay the garbage and recycling fees, a separate charge is collected to account for the additional volume.
Landscape companies can access the Village Yard Waste site with a annual permit that can be collected at the Village Office (2828 Allouez Ave.). For a Village based business the fee is $350 per vehicle and non-Village based businesses are $700 per vehicle. The permit allows contractor use for the entire year. A new permit is required each year.
