Compost Drop-Off Site
Pleasant Prairie operates a Compost Drop-off Site for Village residents. During 2014 the site will be open between March 29 and December 6, weather permitting. The site is easy to use, with convenient drop-off options that can help you work around times when you need more flexibility with your disposal options, like dropping off your garbage and recycling before you leave for a vacation.

The Compost Drop-off Site is located at the Roger Prange Municipal Center at 8600 Green Bay Road. The site is situated in the southwest corner of the property.

When using the Compost Drop-off Site, please be prepared to provide proof of residence in Pleasant Prairie. If you frequent the site, you will need a compost sticker for your automobile window. Stickers are available at Village Hall, the Prange Municipal Center or at the Compost Site.

*The site will be open on Wednesdays, with the exception of the first Wednesday of the month. On these days a contractor will be on site grinding and removing compost from the site.
