MRD Compost Facility Changes

Beginning May 1, 2011, the MRD compost facility at 5211 Highway Q operated by 2nd Season Recycling will implement some rule changes. Residents of the City of Middleton and the Villages of Waunakee and Shorewood Hills may continue to bring the following items to the site at no charge: Brush, branches, limbs (up to 4” in diameter), wood chips, sawdust, grass clippings, leaves, plants, Christmas trees, stumps (clean) and clean wood (not painted or treated). No other items are accepted at the site. Residents of other communities and commercial operators are invited to use the compost facility subject to the drop-off rates posted at the site. Rates will be based on vehicle size; we would politely suggest you maximize your loads to experience the best value. The compost facility will be open seasonally from April 1 through November 30. Hours of operation for the MRD compost facility will be as follows:
            Monday           7:00 am – 5:30 pm
            Tuesday           7:00 am – 7:00 pm
            Wednesday      7:00 am – 5:30 pm
            Thursday          7:00 am – 7:00 pm
            Friday              7:00 am – 5:30 pm
Saturday          7:00 am – 1:00 p.m.
Sunday                        Closed
Please plan your home projects accordingly. After-hours drop off is prohibited and is subject to fine. Our neighboring communities are fortunate to have the MRD compost facility to handle yard material processing.  Diverting this material from the landfill is something our communities can be proud of. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have questions you may call the MRD compost facility at (608) 833-5339 during the hours of operation.
