An amazing group of stakeholders from the Village of Weston, Marathon County Solid Waste Dept., Portage County Solid Waste Dept. and Advanced Disposal championed the very first beta launch of Betterbin (then ERbin) in March 2019.
Madison launched Betterbin during their Summer 2019 trial curbside food scrap pick-up program. In 2020, residents will be able to drop-off food scraps at three locations across the city.
Students and staff are fighting back against contamination fees with Betterbin. We partnered with students from a social entrepreneurship course to implement Betterbin on campus in February 2020.
The UWSP Office of Sustainability, Facilities Services and Dining Services all came together to launch Betterbin in February 2020. COVID19 halted the launch, but not before 250 students downloaded the app, showing their commitment to recycling right on campus.
