Sturgeon Bay seeing spike in compost site use

The compost site on Shiloh Road in Sturgeon Bay has seen increased use this spring. Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says with people spending more time working in their yards, the brush piles at the compost site are mounting. The accumulated piles of brush will be ground up into wood chips next week, along with the composting of leaves and lawn waste.  That, according to Barker, is not usually done until much later in summer.  He asks users of the compost site to follow the rules.



To discourage improper dumping, the City of Sturgeon Bay had approved a change of hours, fees, and operational supervision earlier this year. Barker notes that those changes have not yet been implemented.  The compost site is open from daylight to dusk and free to Sturgeon Bay residents. Non-residents can get permits at the Municipal building to utilize the compost site for drop-off and the purchase of wood chips.
