Curbside Compost Collection Program

Rising Sand Organics will pick up 5 gallon buckets of food waste that households & businesses leave at the curb. They'll swap full buckets for a clean, empty ones. The buckets have screw-top lids that seal in odors & allow for easy handling & cleaning.

Stevens Point residents can sign up for weekly or every-other-week pickup.

Restaurants and other businesses can sign up for weekly pickup.

Businesses that produce more than 50 gallons of food waste weekly should contact the program.

Businesses that produce 50 gallons or less (10 buckets or less) of food waste per week may sign up online.

All of the food waste collected will be composted at Whitefeather Organics farm in Custer and used for organic vegetable production.

This program is a partnership between Rising Sand Organics, UWSP Waste Management Students, the City of Stevens Point, Whitefeather Organics, and Central Rivers Farmshed.
