Organics collection continues to gain traction in cities across the U.S., and Milwaukee is the most recent city to test out the system. In November 2016, the city launched a year-long organics composting study, and nearly 500 households are participating in the study and utilizing brown organics carts for organics waste.
The pilot program costs $12.75 a month, and pickup is every other week during the winter and weekly during the spring, summer and fall seasons.
