Can’t compost at home?

During the Dane County Farmers Market season, Sustain Dane coordinates education, food scrap collection, and food waste hauling from the South and Eastside farmers market locations. Check out Sustain Dane’s Farmers’ Market Food Scrap Collection Program learn more.
Reduce Your Waste by Becoming a Master Recycler
While food waste reduction and composting are excellent ways to reduce our impact on the environment, recycling is another important tool to reduce the overall waste we generate. Recycling can be difficult, as 13% of the waste in the Dane County Landfill could be recycled. To help bring clarity, Sustain Dane hosts the Master Recycler Program to learn the ins and outs of our local recycling system and get your recycling questions answered.
