Start Composting Today!
The Brown County Food & Organic Waste Program is a Pilot Program. Residents who are collecting food waste & organics from their home may participate in our drop-off program. Participants should register to help us track how many people are using the drop-off sites. To sign-up please complete this form (2 pages) and email it to BC_Resource_Recovery@co.brown.wi.us or mail it to Brown County | 2561 S. Broadway | Green Bay, WI 54304.
Brown County's Food Waste & Organics Drop-Off Site even offers avid backyard composters the opportunity to compost additional material like paper towels, napkins, meat and bones, dairy products, greasy pizza boxes and much more.
As of September 15th, 2019 we will not accept any material in compostable plastic bags at our Food Waste Drop-off location.
How It Works
Purchase a Kitchen Compost Bin
Your Job Is Done!
organic material is hauled to an anaerobic digester which accelerates the composting process as well as captures the methane gas from the decomposition process.
Although there will not be a fee for using the Drop-Off Sites during the next operating year, all users must complete a registration form. Participant's registration information helps us track how many people are using the Program so we can make sure we have enough scheduled pick-ups to accommodate everyone's materials, and it allows us to share important updates and information with our participants. It will also help ensure we keep our collected food waste and organic material - and the resulting compost - free of contamination.
