ABOUT LEAFLAN

Area residents unload their yard waste at Leaflan Compost CenterJoe began composting on the farm, in part due to a sustainable farming group that he joined in 1989. As a member of this group he had to have a project to demonstrate. After researching composting, Joe knew that this process would be possible, because he had cow manure. All he needed now was a constant source of carbon, such as grass, leaves, and branches.

Signs direct patrons to the correct area for unloading.Joe connected with the Beloit Public Works Department, and as luck would have it, they were considering starting a recycling program. We started a pilot program with the City of Beloit in 1991 to see if it would work. At first we worked exclusively with the city. They would transport the yard waste to our site for composting. In 1995 we began working directly with the public. Residents bring out their yard waste and drop it off in the designated areas.

We started small, and we did grow steadily.  We were serving, till we retired, the residents of the City of Beloit, Town of Beloit, Rockton, Roscoe, South Beloit, and areas of Northern Winnebago and Boone Counties that chose not to burn or could not burn their yard waste.

A sign and banner flags clearly mark the entrance to Leaflan Compost Center.

After 25 years of serving the Stateline Community we have decided to retire!

Thank you for all your years of patronizing Leaflan Compost Center!
