What are the compost site hours and rules?

Effective September 25, 2019, the hours of operation for the compost site change to 2 p.m. until 6 p.m., until the site closes for the season. The site will remain open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., until further notice. More information will be published when a closing date has been determined.

The compost site will open for the season on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, from 3 pm to 7 pm. In addition, it will be open on Saturdays beginning April 13, from 8 am to 2 pm. In the fall we change to 2 to 6 pm on Wednesdays due to shortened daylight hours. The City will provide a loader for loading chips and compost into resident’s trailers and trucks on the first Saturday of every month until the site closes for the season.

The compost site is located at:
599 N Jefferson Street
Whitewater, WI 53190

The compost site is available to City of Whitewater residents only. Residents can bring yard waste to the site for disposal. Residents are required to empty the yard waste from any container used in the transportation of the yard waste and take the container home. Residents can also help themselves to composted material or wood chips at the site. Residents must load their own compost or wood chips.
