Illegal dumping habits to affect compost hours

Illegal dumping habits to affect compost hours

 

You may have to change your hours of dumping compost after the city of Sturgeon Bay officially announced changes taking effect that had been approved for a year and a half. The city will begin closing and locking the gate at its compost site at night, starting on Wednesday, July 21st. These changes were approved in January of 2020 and a press release from the city, states that the change will help curb illegal dumping at the compost site. Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says that city employees have been spending time almost daily removing illegal materials from the brush and lawn waste piles, which comes to a high cost for proper disposal. Items that have become commonly removed from the piles are treated lumber, lumber with nails, concrete, and plastic materials, which can damage shredding equipment. 

 

Compost hours that become effective on Wednesday are below:

 

Spring and Fall (March 15th to May 14th; October 1st to December 15th)

 

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday     7:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Saturday-Sunday                                            8:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. 

 

Summer (May 15th to October 1st) 

 

Monday, Wednesday, Friday    8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
