Whether you are passionate about diverting food scraps from the landfill or creating healthy soils, Compost Crusader has been working to implement a foundation for the composting industry here in Wisconsin. We are using a multifaceted approach with input from community members and stakeholders to guide the future of composting. 

One of the ways we are working to build compost infrastructure is through legislative action. In December 2018, the state of Illinois passes HB 4790 - a bill that requires at least 25% compost-amended soil be utilized in state funded DOT projects. This bill is aimed to help with capacity issues that compost sites face and creates an overall cost savings to you, the taxpayer. 

While we don’t currently have legislation drafted here in Wisconsin, we’d like your help to show representatives in the legislature that we have support from residents and businesses throughout Wisconsin to bring forth similar legislation and grow our industry.
