Home Composting The Village of Weston, Marathon County Solid Waste Department, and Recycling Connections Corporation will be holding a Home Composting Event
on a Saturday, to be determined, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, at the Weston Farmer's Market, located on the corner of Schofield Avenue and Camp Phillips Road.
If you are interested in learning how to compost, or looking for some new tips, we encourage you stop on out and see us at this free event!
Home Composter bins and kitchen pails, provided by Marathon County Solid Waste Department, will be available for purchase.
Please do not put food waste inside your recycling cart. Your options with food waste are to either place your food waste in your refuse cart or consider home composting.
Composting or "recycling" our own yard, garden and kitchen waste is the easiest and cheapest way of taking responsibility for some of our own waste. Did you know that food and yard waste make up over 25% to 30% of our solid wastes nationwide?
The BEST place to compost is in our own back yards.
Composting meets the criteria of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Through composting, the amount of waste sent to the landfill is Reduced, the organic matter is Reused, and it is Recycled into a useful soil amendment.
If you are interested in learning more about home composting and/or would like to purchase a compost bin, please contact Marathon County Solid Waste at 877-270-3989.
