Home solutions
The best thing you can do with your yard waste is to compost as much as possible or use it as mulch, at home. Grass clippings should be left on the lawn, where they provide nutrients for your turf. Clippings and leaves also make excellent mulch in gardens and around flowers and shrubs.

FREE Compost and Wood Chips
Compost and wood chips are available to village residents at the Village Compost Site on a first come, first served basis during regular operating hours. Loader for Loading compost onto vehicles is available on Saturdays only.

Where do I get a Recycling Sticker?
Recycling Stickers are available at the Village Hall or Roger Prange Center, for no charge.

Pleasant Prairie has these new rules in order to dispose of material properly and to protect village employees that are assisting you. Thank you for your cooperation.
