Dane County will be giving away compost by the car and truck load for free from April 24 through April 29 to help backyard gardeners and growers get ready for another growing season.  The County’s two compost sites – one near Waunakee, the other in Verona – will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. starting on Monday.


The county will offer one load of free compost for residential use per person, per day.  Additional residential loads and compost for commercial customers may be obtained for a fee.  The volume of compost available is limited to the in-stock quantity, and quantities may run out before the end of the week.


For questions, please call Robert Regan at 608-266-4139.


Dane County’s compost sites are located at:



Location:  5254 Hwy. 19 one-half mile east of the Hwy. 19 & 113 intersection.  Across from the former Sparby's Christmas Barn.



Location:  Adjacent to the east side of the old County Landfill.  Same entrance as Badger Prairie Health Care Center, and then follow the gravel road to the right.
