We have received notice from Sanimax, the company collecting all our food waste, that they will no longer be providing organics collection services. This means that we will have to close our Food Waste & Organics Drop-off site. At this time, we don’t have any available options to replace this service though we are continuing to research options with local farms and composting operations.

Program Details

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@browncountywi.gov 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.

Drop-Off Your Compostable Waste

At Our Current Location

Your Job Is Done!  

But the story isn't over...

organic material is hauled to an anaerobic digester which accelerates the composting process as well as captures the methane gas from the decomposition process.

Complete The Circle And Buy Titan Gold

your organic compost is available for purchase at UW-Oshkosh's Environmental Research and Innovation Center. 

Titan Gold can also be purchased at Garden Supply Guys in Howard, WI

Although there will not be a fee for using the Drop-Off Sites, all new 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.
