Composting

Picture of Compost BinCompost supplies organic matter to soil, attracts earthworms, stimulates beneficial soil microorganisms, and increases both soil nutrient and water retention capacities. Homeowners save money by using compost to replace soil amendments like peat moss; have overall healthier soil with less need for fertilizer or pesticide and save tax dollars by reducing municipal costs for curb side pick up and drop-off sites for yard materials.

 

Compost bins are available at the Winnebago County Solid Waste Scale Office or Transfer Station for $45 (includes tax). Cash, check, VISA or MasterCard accepted.  Assembly is required. Please call 920-232-1800 or 920-232-1850 or email khutter@co.winnebago.wi.us for more information.
